Training Schedule Coming Soon

The Divisions of Member Services and Employer Reporting, Compliance & Education are partnering again this year to offer Reporting Official training with the Pre-Retirement Education Program (PREP). This is an opportunity for employers to have a full day of KRS training. The retirement eligibility requirement to attend PREP is waived for employers. We plan to publish the full schedule in March and will notify employers by email once registration is available.

Members are informed about PREP registration through the KRS website, social media and email. KRS requires that members registering for PREP be eligible to retire within five years. Members meeting this requirement are notified by email when PREP registration is available. Please encourage your employees to update their email address to receive announcements like this from KRS. Employees can update their email online through Member Self Service. If an employee has never registered for Member Self Service, an email address must be provided during the registration process.
