Unlock the Mysteries of Your Pension Plan

Unlocking the Mysteries of Your Pension Plan


Do you understand how your pension plan works and the value it brings to your overall retirement picture? Join the Johnson Bixby team of retirement planning experts at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22, for a Ripple Event on Unlocking the Mysteries of Your Pension Plan.

Topics we’ll cover include:

  • Providing a refresher course on how pensions work.
  • Calculating and understanding the value of your pension.
  • Addressing frequently asked questions such as:
  • The difference between defined benefit versus defined contribution?
  • What’s a “survivor” benefit?
  • Making sense of the pension alphabet soup acronym list – COLA, PERS, TRS, SERS, IAP, OPSRP, etc.
  • Reviewing pension statements in small group settings.

We’ll meet in person in the Ripple Space on the fourth floor of the Hurley Building in downtown Vancouver, Washington. Complimentary drinks and snacks provided.

About Ripple Events

We measure our success through the impact we make by sharing our knowledge and resources. One of the ways we do this is through our Ripple Events series.

Ripple Events are seminars, talks, and workshops in which we gather to share financial information and knowledge. Topics run the gamut from practical strategies for today and into the future to others that provide insights for doing good in the world. Our intent is for you to walk away with tools and knowledge to make informed decisions about important life experiences.

Ripple Events are an extension of our values at Johnson Bixby and Integrated Tax Services. We see how knowledge leads to positive action, and when our efforts in one area connect to other areas, we create ripples that can help our clients, employees and communities flourish. We call this the Ripple Effect, and it is core to how and why we do business.

Simply put, Ripple Events are another way we can make a difference in people’s lives and in our communities.
