Upcoming CalPERS Retirement Class at Sonoma State University

CSU Logo

Are you nearing retirement or interested in learning more about CalPERS Retirement options? Enroll in the Planning Your Retirement class to learn about the CalPERS retirement process, programs and benefits offered by the California Public Employees’ Retirement System.

These are some of the topics that will be covered:

  • What is CalPERS?
  • Retirement calculation
  • Benefit estimates
  • Retirement payment options

The class is held in Schulz, Room 1121 from 9:00 am to 11:30 am on June 18.

To enroll in the class, please send an email to payroll@sonoma.edu, we will send a confirmation of class enrollment. Please keep in mind that the classes may fill quickly and we will schedule more classes in the future. After attending the class, employees may also elect to request a one-on-one, 30 minute session in the afternoon with a CalPERS representative, for individual personalized assistance with completing the retirement application. These sessions are available only by appointment. Please bring your CalPERS estimate to the appointment. If a CalPERS estimate is needed, the booklets are available from the Payroll and Benefits Office. Please contact me directly by email, trisha.torgrimson@sonoma.edu, or x4-2178 to make arrangements. We are evaluating each request for the one-on-one sessions to determine priority and appreciate your patience while we make arrangements. Each individual will be contacted by email or phone with specific details for the date, time, and location for their 30 minute session.

If you are unable to attend one of these classes, you may wish to access all the class information using the CalPERS On-Line Education Tool through the My CalPERS website, at https://my.calpers.ca.gov. Or, if you prefer, you may visit one of the Regional Offices. The nearest office is located in Walnut Creek.
