This spring term, we will host two CFA Retirement Webinars, presented by Jonathan Karpf, CFA Retirement Specialist.
Each of these two-and-a-half hour webinars will cover:
- The ins and outs of your CalPERS pension, including the seven distinct retirement options, survivors’ benefit, how to retain subsidized medical and dental benefits for life, FERP and PRTB (Pre-Retirement Reduction in Time Base)
- Social Security
We know pension and retirement systems are important for our retirees and it’s why CFA members and member leaders continue our advocacy despite pushback from management and pension boards. New research from UC Berkeley Labor Center highlights the importance of this advocacy, finding that public pension systems play a massive role in retirement security for every California community, particularly Black and Latinx communities.
Research finds that between 2018-20, California retirees of color with pensions were 65 percent more likely to have incomes 200 percent above the Federal Poverty Level than those without a pension. And retired women with pensions were 53 percent more likely to avoid poverty.
There will also be an opportunity to have all your questions answered on these webinars.
