Understand & Plan
The Missouri public education system offers educators and employees some of the best pension plans in the country. But it's imperative for participants to understand the system in order to maximize their benefits. We help educators understand and plan.
Working With ERS
Our services are available on an individual or group basis. We will gladly meet with with PSRS/PEERS members and their families at their convenience. Group workshops for school districts and their employees are also available. Educators and administrators are busy people, so we provide services at the times and places that meet their demanding schedules.
Educators Helping Educators
We've been educators, administrators, and employees in Missouri public schools. We know it's extremely intimidating to make choices today that have such a powerful impact on the future. Not only have we done it ourselves, but we've helped many other Missouri educators make smart choices about their plans and their retirement. And we look forward to helping many more.
We Help PSRS/PEERS members individually and in group workshops.
• Understand the PSRS/PEERS normal retirement benchmarks
• Understand the PSRS/PEERS special initiative: The "Partial Lump Sum Option (PLSO)"
• Understand and research purchase of service credit strategies
• Understand and research the relationship of their Social Security work history to their PSRS/PEERS pension
• Understand and research monthly pension option strategies
Once participants have a clear understanding of the system, we advise them on strategies as they plan and prepare for the retirement they deserve.
