The event schedule is the same both days, so you can attend the day that works best for you and take full advantage of classes and exhibitors. Whether you are early through mid-career or nearing retirement, plan to spend the day learning about your benefits and gathering information to plan your retirement.

Event Classes

  • Find helpful class Learning Guides under each class description on the Event Classes page.
  • It's not necessary to attend one class before another as they are all general in nature.
  • Registration does not guarantee a seat in the classes.
  • Please be flexible when planning your day as some morning classes fill up quickly and class seating is first-come, first-served. 
  • If you're unable to attend a class because it's full, use this time to visit our exhibit area.
  • Health classes are intended for those eligible for CalPERS health benefits, including most state and California State University (CSU) employees. If you work for a school district or public agency, check with your employer to confirm your eligibility before attending the health classes.    
  • If you don't plan on attending all classes, the afternoon tends to be less crowded.


  • Our exhibit area is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
