SACRAMENTO, CA - The California Public Employees' Retirement System is hosting a two-day CalPERS Benefits Education Event (CBEE) in Garden Grove during September to educate members in a five-county area about programs and benefits available to them. This final CBEE of 2017 will take place at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Garden Grove on Friday, September 15, and Saturday, September 16, 2017. The same program is offered on each day, so attendees can select the day they wish to attend.
There are nearly 230,000 active members in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties who can benefit from this event. Whether new to CalPERS, in mid-career, or nearing retirement, CBEEs offer all CalPERS members a wealth of information about their retirement and health benefits, supplemental savings plans, long-term care coverage, and more. Representatives from CalPERS Regional Offices will be on hand to answer questions.
Open both Friday and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the event features classes specific to both early through mid-career members, and those nearing retirement. Topics to be covered include CalPERS retirement benefits, CalPERS health benefits, and deferred compensation. The deferred compensation class is sponsored by the California Department of Human Resources' Savings Plus program. In addition, classes on my|CalPERS and Social Security will be offered.
