Human Resources to host presentations for those preparing to retire

May 23, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — While retiring can be an exciting time, it also can be stressful and prompt many questions. To help employees who are thinking about retirement, Penn State Human Resources’ benefits team is hosting monthly in-person presentations and online webinars.

The presentations, starting in June, will educate employees about their medical, dental and vision insurance options upon retirement. Employees may want to consider attending either type of presentation approximately two to three months prior to retiring.

Not every employment situation is the same when it comes to retirement — some employees will be Medicare-eligible upon retirement, some employees will have a spouse who will remain actively employed by the University. In these presentations, the benefits team will walk through the various scenarios and explain how they can affect an employee’s insurance options upon retirement.

The schedule of in-person presentations and webinars is as follows:
