Total Benefits

Workshops: Prepare to retire from UW

Attend a workshop in person or via a live-streamed webinar

Attending a UW Total Benefits retirement workshop when planning for your retirement is critical in understanding the process of retiring from the University of Washington. Workshops are available in several formats—join the workshop from your office through livestream, watch at your own pace with an on-demand webinar or attend the workshop in-person.

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. If you are attending in-person, guests are welcome on a space available basis. Email bensem@uw.edu and specify the date and time of the workshop that you are wanting your guest to attend.
