Held virtually

This year we are offering a variety of sessions for you so you can design your own workshop focusing on financial information. Whether you are an early career or mid-career teacher, we start the day with a variety of sessions to help you understand your money from paycheck to retirement. The Ohio Deferred Compensation session is good for anyone that is a public employee, certified or classified. Sessions designed for you to attend right from home! We won’t be snowed out!

  • 8:30 AM-10:00 AM-STRS RETIREMENT COUNTDOWN with Tamla Cole, STRS member education assistant director. Are you a certified employee with retirement just a few short years away, maybe thinking you’d like to retire early? Then you need to attend this session as Tamla will give you the timeline and details that you need to follow.
  • 11:00 AM-12:00 PM- EARLY CAREER FINANCIAL HEALTH, with Tamla Cole, for the early career certified educator. This session emphasizes the importance of overall financial health (i.e., reducing debt, increased savings) with an overview of retirement benefits. Just starting your career is overwhelming enough; get on the right path to financial security while learning about your valuable STRS retirement plan.
  • 9:00 AM -10:00 AM-STUDENT LOAN REPAYMENT AND FORGIVENESS– Guy Kendal-Freas of NEA Member Benefit will explain the changes in the Student Loan Forgiveness Plan that began in October. If you have a student loan, sign up for updated information. You may benefit from the change in law.
  • 10:15 AM-11:00 AM-OHIO DEFERRED COMPENSATION 457 PLAN with area rep Thomas Tornabene, learn how any public employee can participate in the 457 plan as an addition or alternative to traditional 403B plans as a way to invest for the future. The 457 plan offers tax-deferred savings.
