Partnerships: DFI and the Department of Retirement Systems

DFI table at a recent DRS seminar
For the past two years, the Washington Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has partnered with the Washington Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) to provide state employees nearing retirement with free financial education materials.

DRS offers free retirement planning seminars to employees who are within five years of retirement. The seminars, held across the state, go over the details of retirement benefits, health insurance, deferred compensation and pension work.

DFI staff attends many of these seminars to hand out free Investor Protection Trust investor education booklets and to offer tips on how to avoid financial fraud.

Attendees at a recent seminar at the University of Washington commented on how helpful the seminar was and how grateful they were to receive the free investor education literature provided by DFI.
