Prepare to retire from UW
Attend a retirement workshop livestream using Zoom
Due to COVID-19 we have transitioned all of our retirement workshops to livestream.
Attending a UW Benefits retirement workshop when planning for your retirement is critical in understanding the process of retiring from the University of Washington. Most workshops are available in two formats—join the workshop using livestream or watch at your own pace with an on-demand webinar. Our UWSRP workshop is only available via livestream.
If you prefer to keep your pre-retirement process confidential, the livestream option allows you to change your name to anonymous and with the on-demand webinar option, you can watch short segments of the retirement workshop whenever you would like without attending a live workshop.
Spouses and partners are welcome to view the livestream workshop or the on-demand webinar.
