Does PMRS provide any training?

The Pennsylvania Municipal Retirement System occasionally conducts seminars for municipal contact persons, to review the various procedures needed to properly administer a PMRS pension plan. Municipalities may also request a visit from a PMRS representative for training on administrative forms and procedures. Also, pre-retirement seminars are conducted each fall in various locations across the Commonwealth. These seminars provide valuable information to persons within five years of retirement and other interested parties. Locations, dates and times will be posted on this site.
