Pre-Retirement Seminar season 2019 is well underway here at LAGERS. We're traveling the state, coming to your area to educate and inform you on the process of retiring and receiving your LAGERS benefit. If you are within 5 years of retirement, we recommend you attend at least one before retirement rolls around. We asked those who attended our seminars how we did, and we came up with 3 reasons why you should attend a Pre-Retirement Seminar.
This week we celebrate everything that makes our local governments wonderful. From roads, school buses, clean water and parks; to our local officials and our first responders - fire, police and EMS workers and everyone in between who works hard for their local communities.

Come with us on a behind the scenes visit to LAGERS employer Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield. You'll see just how important it is to these LAGERS members that they get to serve their community in such a fun and interesting way. These City of Springfield employees work in many different roles at the zoo, with most of them being Zookeepers and caretakers of the animals. Their commitment to their jobs and their service shows through in each of the videos below.
In honor of America Saves Week we held another Facebook Live event this past Monday. Jeff Pabst, LAGERS' Education and Outreach Coordinator, discussed the value of LAGERS benefits in our latest installment.
