For all public school employees hired BEFORE July 1, 2010: The Planning Your Retirement Workshop (PYR) is designed for public school employees in the defined benefit pension plan first hired before July 1, 2010 who are within five years of retirement. These meetings were, until recently, known as Preretirement Information Meetings (PRIMs). The workshop lasts about two hours. We also encourage you to generate a pension estimate in miAccount and bring that estimate with you to the meeting. The meeting will also cover:

  • Meeting eligibility requirements;
  • Picking Pension Payment Option;
  • Deciding on insurance;
  • Reviewing plans, choosing a retirement date, and applying for retirement; and
  • Adjusting to retirement.


This meeting will begin at 5:30 p. m. on November 13, 2018 in Branch ISD Career Center. Register for this meeting by clicking here.
