Members Like Virtual Appointments!

ETF is pleased to offer a convenient, new service for members who are within a year of retirement: virtual retirement appointments.

These appointments are secure, one-on-one meetings with an ETF benefits specialist, conducted online. Together, you and the specialist talk by telephone and view online your retirement estimate, annuity options and discuss the retirement process in general. Virtual appointments are convenient (no travel necessary) and easy to schedule.
