Retirement Ready with Provident10

We are pleased to host the Retirement Ready Modules – a series of three dynamic virtual webinars hosted by our Director of Member Services, Perry Downey.

In these modules, we will cover all of the information you need to know to properly plan for retirement with your Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP), including many of the lesser known facts and tips around smart retirement planning. Our goal is to educate you on all of the relevant areas of interest by using a checklist for retirement planning with your PSPP.

The information is particularly relevant to members who are nearing retirement, including those who are within 5 years of being pension eligible. That said, these modules are open to anyone who would like to know more about the PSPP. It’s never too early or too late to start planning, so, if you are a new Plan member, approaching retirement, or a person who may be supporting a retiring member, we would love to have you join us.

Each module is approximately 1.5 – 2 hours in length, with a capacity of 100 people. Varying times and dates will be available for you to register below, with additional modules for 2021 launching on the first Monday of each month at 11:30 AM. Participants will also receive a Retirement Ready Tip Sheets and a Retirement Checklist at the end of the modules.

We look forward to having you join us!
