Upcoming events

Virtual Retiree Link Meeting

July 14 @ 9:00am – 11:00pm

Interact with leaders and experts from your LAGERS retirement system. Hear an update on LAGERS’ finances, investment performance, funding, and legislation. Then, LAGERS’ chief counsel will provide you with a basic overview of estate planning.

In order to keep our retirees safe and healthy, we have chosen to host a Virtual Retiree Link Meeting instead of our regular regional in-person meetings. We hope you are able to join us online.

Please keep in mind this is an online event, so there are some technology requirements: a computer with speakers (Mobile phones are compatible as well); stable internet connection; and you may have to download the GoToWebinar app or software prior to the meeting. Once you register, you will receive an email with instructions on how to join the meeting. When logging in to the webinar, if you have any technical difficulties, call 1-800-447-4334 Ext. 6260
