Webinars for Every Career Stage

Colorado PERA offers educational webinars to help members understand the value of their PERA benefits. These webinars are free, take less than an hour, and have social distancing automatically built in. In addition, webinar participants frequently report feeling relief and being more prepared for retirement. This is your opportunity to get answers to all those questions swimming around in your head as PERA staff conduct live Q&A sessions at every meeting. Check out some of our offerings for members at different stages in their careers:
