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.

You are right. If you have a full benefit (not reduced
because of lack of years) your monthly retirement pension
will be very close to your take home pay while teaching.

In addition to that good news, I found a fun way to
supplement my pension. Send me an email and I will be glad
to share.
