Seminar Description
Early Career      
This seminar is geared to newer LASERS members hired on or after January 1, 2011, who are not eligible for retirement in the next five years. Participants are introduced to the benefits offered by LASERS, hear the value of State employment and membership in a defined benefit retirement plan, and learn ways to enhance future retirement benefits today. A representative from the Louisiana Deferred Compensation Program will also attend to provide additional methods to save now for retirement. The Early Career seminars are approximately 1.5 hours in length. Detailed information on the types of retirement will not be presented. Members within five years of retirement should consider attending a Pre-Retirement Education Program (PREP) instead.
