The Massachusetts State Retirement Board’s ninth annual SMART Retirement & Beyond 2014/2015 seminar series began on February 26th with a seminar at North Shore Community College and concluded on May 13th with a seminar at the Massachusetts State House. Over 2,700 attended these retirement planning seminars, which are held exclusively for Massachusetts State Employees. They are sponsored by State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg, the Massachusetts State Retirement Board and the Deferred Compensation SMART Plan. Additionally, a Social Security Administration representative participated when their schedule permitted.

    Whether a member is just beginning their career with the state or a year away from retirement, these seminars are very beneficial. Eligible members learn about the features and latest updates on their pension benefit, GIC health care, and the benefits of investing in the Massachusetts Deferred Compensation SMART Plan.


    We are currently in the process of developing our 2015 Fall schedule. We expect the schedule to be posted here no later than the end of August. Details will be posted here as soon as they become available. We hope that you will join us at one of our Fall SMART Retirement & Beyond seminars. 


    The MSRB always welcomes seminar requests and we do our best to accommodate them. Please email your seminar request to MSRBCommunications@tre.state.ma.us and be sure to include the date and time you would like to host a seminar along with the specific location and estimated number of attendees.

    For your reference, our recent 2015 Winter/Spring schedule is listed below.
