Last year's Paint Nite fundraiser was a big success raising $385 for the summer scholarship fund. Let's make this year's event even better! GNTA has teamed up with PaintNite.com to host our event, where $15 for every ticket sale will go to the scholarship.
Please join us for another fun-filled evening raising money for the GNTA Summer Scholarship Fund on Tuesday, January 30th at 7:00pm at K-Pacho in New Hyde Park. Please use the link below to register.
Thank you for your continued support!
Thinking about retirement? HEre's an update from our friends at NYSTRS
Winter-Spring 2018 Schedule of PREP Seminars
No matter how far along you are in your career, careful financial and retirement planning are critical. NYSTRS’ Pension & Retirement Education Program (PREP) is designed to help members of all ages accomplish that. Members can tailor PREP to fit their needs by staying for the entire seminar (8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) or just those modules that help them the most: NYSTRS benefits; financial planning; Social Security; estate planning; retirement—a new beginning; and, the retirement process.
PREP seminars are free, and sessions are held throughout the year across the state. Our winter-spring 2018 PREP schedule is now available on the Retirement Planning > Pension & Retirement Education Program page of our website at NYSTRS.org. Please forward this information to your staff as soon as possible so those wishing to attend can register before slots are filled. Instructions for making reservations, which will be accepted in the order they are received, are included on the schedule.
Please copy the schedule and post it in locations frequented by your staff. An electronic
version of this Administrative Bulletin, complete with schedule, is also available on theEmployers > Administrative Bulletins page of our website.
Members may also be interested in attending a NYSTRS benefits consultation, available year-round. At these one-on-one meetings, staff review the retirement process, explain payment options and provide members with benefit estimates for their target retirement dates. Our 2017-2018 consultation schedule is now available on the Retirement Planning > Benefits Consultations page of our website.
An archive of Delegate News issued since 2005 is found on our website.
