The Economics of Your Teacher Retirement

A Special Event for Teachers
Thursday, January 18, 2018

Location: TBA

Should you stay or go? Maybe you have considered either moving to another state to teach, or to leaving teaching altogether. Before you do, learn ALL the costs and benefits of continuing to teach in Arizona—you may end up far better off than you think by staying in teaching, in Arizona. Either way, you need accurate information before you decide.

This event will have 3 components: 

  • How the ASRS computes your pension and how to maximize it
  • The opportunity cost of teaching, as well as the present and future benefits of your pension and Social Security
  • How to think about your teaching pension and Social Security as part of your entire retirement financial plan

This session is for teacher information only, and applies directly to those within the ASRS system. There are no commercial interests involved, so no-one will try to sell you anything. This workshop is brought to you by three southern Arizona non-profits working on behalf of teachers: Tucson Values Teachers, the TCI Foundation, and the Thomas R. Brown Foundation.
