MTA Retirement Workshops, April 2024

Individual sessions are available between 9 a.m. and 5:15 p.m. on WED., 4/03; THU., 4/11 and MON., 04/15. 


For those just now hearing about retirement consultations, these sessions assist members in securing answers to retirement questions as they relate to the member’s specific situation.  For example:  

- Given my age and my service, when is the best time for me to retire? 

- I’ve heard that members may be able to “buy back” service. Might I have a buyback opportunity? 

- I’m involved with the [now closed} Section-60 option for transfer into the MSERS?  Where am I in this 


- Why take option “C” instead of Option “A” or “B”? 

- How will my Social Security benefit be affected by my MA pension? 

- Where will I stand with health insurance in retirement?  Will I be going into Medicare? 

- As I move toward retirement, what, if any options, exists for me to enhance my retirement benefit?
