FAQs

Do I need to register my spouse or a guest?

Yes. Each guest must register to ensure the facility does not exceed capacity. Please mark them as a "Guest of the Member."


Will a counselor be available to discuss my individual account?

KRS counselors will be available to discuss questions of a general nature but there will be NO one-on-one counseling.


Will my employer grant leave time in order for me to attend?

Please contact your employer as this is determined by individual agencies.


Will this program be beneficial to me if I ONLY have certified service with a board of education, community college and/or university?

No. Reciprocity is a topic that will be discussed in the program but that agreement is for those members that have service in both KRS and another state-administered retirement program such as Teachers' Retirement System, Judicial Retirement System and/or Legislative Retirement System.


I am an Employer Representative. I would like to attend the Pre-Retirement Education Program to better understand member benefits. I would also like to attend the Reporting Official Training. Do I need to register for these programs separately?

Yes. You may register for the Pre-Retirement Education Program through Eventbrite. You may also register for the Reporting Official Training through Employer Self-Service (ESS). Follow the link to register for the additional training: https://kyret.ky.gov/Employers/Training


If I am unable to attend, can I give my ticket to another member?

Yes, if they meet the requirements to attend. While they are permitted to attend in your place, we will not be able to provide an Annual Statement with their account information. If requested, an Annual Statement will be mailed to them at the conclusion of the program.
