Retired Indiana Public Employees Association - Working for your retirement

The countdown is on for this year’s Annual Convention. Whether you’re planning for retirement or already there, or if you’re caring for an elderly loved one, this year’s program and vendors will provide important information to help answer all of your questions.

See what’s in store below.

Law Enforcement
Chief Robert Wiley was a trooper with the Indiana State Police for 25 years. He was appointed Chief of Police for the city of Kendallville in September of 2005 and continues to serve in that capacity. Chief Wiley served as President of the Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police in 2016. At this year’s convention, Chief Wiley will discuss the challenges facing law enforcement today and in the future. He’ll share possible solutions, including both short and long-term strategies.

Keynote Address: Richard F. Oslund, Jr.
Mr. Oslund has been a firefighter for nearly 30 years. He joined the Warren Township Fire Department on January 4, 1988. The Warren Township Fire Department was merged with the Indianapolis Fire Department in 2006 and Mr. Oslund has been a firefighter with the City of Indianapolis ever since. Mr. Oslund volunteered to travel to New York City following the attacks on September 11, 2001. He was in New York for 2 weeks assisting in the rescue and recovery effort. We are honored to welcome him to our podium to share with us his experiences during this highly emotional and difficult time.

What’s new at INPRS—PERF?
This session from the staff at Indiana Public Retirement System (INPRS) will help you discover what is new at INPRS and how it will affect you. In addition, you’ll learn about the new My Choice Retirement Savings Plan and how future generations of public employees will save for retirement. We’ll end with a chance for you to ask questions—the INPRS staff will be here all day.

Senior Legal Issues
The legal, financial, medical and emotional issues of growing older can be overwhelming. Life Care Planning, a holistic team approach to elder law empowers elders and their caregivers to respond to these challenges. Seeking counsel from an Elder Law Attorney can be critical in guiding you through this process. This presentation will bring clarity to those concerns and also answer questions that you didn’t even know to ask.

Retirement Finances
How much income will I need in retirement? How do I protect my income from the three risks that all retirees face: inflation, longevity and timing? Learn more about the ‘Income for Life’ model. Whether you are retired or thinking about retiring you will want to learn more about this process.

Long-term Care
Attendees of the 2016 RIPEA Annual Convention were asked in a survey what topics they would like to learn about at the 2017 convention. The second most requested topic was longterm care (LTC). The Indiana Long Term Care Insurance Program, a partnership between Indiana State government and private insurance companies, is one of the keys for protecting some or all of your assets. Tim Rogers, Genworth’s Long Term Care Representative, will not only talk about LTC partnership policies, he will also inform you about other options for funding your LTC needs such as annuities, life insurance, or one of Genworth’s Element® Plans. We at RIPEA are excited to have Tim make a major benefit announcement at this year’s convention. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, almost 70% of people turning age 65 will need long-term care at some point in their lives. You’ll want to hear Tim’s presentation to help you find some peace of mind about Long Term Care and funding options.
