Retirement Planning

Retirement brings change.  Taking the time to consider the changes and how to handle them will help you plan and take control of your future.  The INTO endeavours to assist our members in understanding what to expect from retirement and in helping with the preparation required.

INTO Retirement Planning Seminars and Webinars are delivered by a team of experts and are specifically tailored for primary teachers who are contemplating retirement. We advise that if you are considering retirement, that you attend a seminar or webinar at least a year prior to your proposed retirement date.
