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.
