New Hire Retirement Plan Selection Seminars
You will need to make a selection in within your first 90 days of employment. Sign up for a seminar here.
IEA will be hosting four New Member Retirement Planning Seminars to help members new to the profession, or new to the State of Washington, in the process of selecting their retirement plan.
Financial planners from NEA Retirement and/or WEA VALIC will be explaining your retirement plan options.
As a new employee, you are required to choose a retirement plan. The form required for this decision was included in your orientation packet. You are given 90 days from your hire date to make your choice, so you can gather information and make an informed decision. We encourage you not to make this selection casually as your decision is permanent. If you do not make a choice, you will automatically default into Plan 3, using the minimum contribution rate to the defined contribution portion of the plan.
Open Enrollment begins August 22, 2016 and runs through September 30, 2016
This will be your only time to make medical benefit changes for the upcoming plan year.
We use home email addresses to communicate information to members during breaks and information that cannot be send via district email. Please update any changes to your personal information, especially your home email address, on the IEA Member Information Update Form.
