Retirement Counseling

CCCERA Overview Video

The CCCERA Overview Video provides a basic overview of the defined benefit program that CCCERA administers. Learn about contributions, how monthly retirement benefits are calculated, and other tools and terminology to plan for your future retirement. This overview is great for anyone, no matter what point in their career. 

Please watch our video and let us know if you have any questions.

Pre-Retirement Workshop

Pre-retirement workshops are available to all members and provide a basic overview of the retirement process. The workshop is a great first step for members considering retirement, and particularly helpful for members planning to retire within five years.

The workshop includes:

  • How to calculate your monthly retirement benefit.
  • The options you can choose from to provide a lifetime monthly benefit to your survivors.
  • What you need to know if you return to work after retirement.
  • How the Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) could affect your retirement.
  • Presentations from Empower and retiree organizations.

Check our calendar to see when the next workshop is scheduled. Reservations are required and fill up fast! Please call CCCERA for availability and to sign up.
