The Economics of Your Teacher Retirement

A Special Event for Teachers

Monday, May 8, 2017

5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

The University of Arizona – UA Eller College

It can be difficult to compare the large number of hours you work with the number on your paycheck. And maybe you have considered either moving to another state to teach, or to leave teaching altogether for a private sector job. Before you do, take the time to learn ALL the costs and benefits of continuing to teach in Arizona – you may end up far better off than you think by staying and teaching in Arizona.

This event will have 3 components:

I. How the ASRS computes your pension and how to maximize it

II. The opportunity cost of teaching, as well as the present and future benefits of your pension and Social Security

III. How to think about your teaching pension and Social Security as part of your entire retirement financial plan

This session is for teacher enlightenment 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 nonprofits working on behalf of teachers: Tucson Values Teachers, the TCI Foundation, and the Thomas R. Brown Foundations.

Refreshments will be served.
