Have you been to the Teacher Retirement Office in Frankfort?

    I am now 4 years and 168 days from retirement! I have
    always heard that you should start visiting the Teachers'
    Retirement Office annually when you are five years from
    retirement. So...two friends and I went to the office
    this summer. I must say that we had a ball! The
    counselors were so friendly and helpful that we were very
    comfortable talking to them. I was absolutely amazed at
    the amount they projected for my retirement. Even though
    collegues have told me that their monthly retirement
    checks were only about $100.00 less than their last
    month's salary, it was hard to believe. Now, getting my
    own projected annunity printout has convinced me. Why any
    teacher would stay longer than 27 years, when the
    retirement annunity is so good, is beyond me. If you have visited the Teachers' Retirement Office, tell
    us about your experience.
