October 18-19, 2018 – MFPE Educator Conference, Billings
TRS members who plan to attend the 2018 Educator Conference will have two opportunities to see our Ready-Set-Retire presentation at the conference.
NEW for 2018 – We'll offer an introductory 'TRS 101' presentation for those who simply want to learn more about the retirement system. And, another presentation on My TRS will explain how to view account details and update beneficiaries online. We hope to see you there!
- Note: To attend the Educator Conference, you must register on the MFPE website.
Unable to attend a live session? We invite you to watch the video from a January 2018 "Ready-Set-Retire" presentation in Helena. (This link accesses the TRS YouTube channel.) The slides from the presentation also are available here (pdf).
