Retirement

Active district employees who are considering retirement should schedule a pre-retirement conference with either PERA or TRA (see contact information below) based on your current position. Once you have your retirement date finalized, please submit a letter of resignation/retirement to Human Resources with a copy to your supervisor/principal. Information on continuing insurance benefits will be mailed to your home from OneDigital. Contact Mary Gorman at 952 681-6444 if you have any questions. 

PERA offers retirement group counseling sessions periodically through the metro area.  Check back here for updated flyers.  If you wish to schedule an individual appointment with PERA, please call 651 296-7460.
