Employer Training

Employers play an important role in the retirement process. To make sure you have all the information you need, TRSL offers a number of employer training opportunities throughout the year. These resources include our annual annual employer training, online training sessions through convenient web-conferencing and on-site training at your request.

We encourage you to take advantage of these great opportunities to freshen up your retirement knowledge and get answers to your reporting questions.
