Sometimes the best way to learn is to hear from people just like you.

ESI was thrilled to partner with Westwood High School to produce a video featuring some past and present retirees. The video production students researched the program and were excited to interview some of their very own teachers. They did an excellent job of capturing the feelings, fears, and excitement of retiring with ESI.

Watch to hear these retirees' candid, unfiltered feedback on what it was like for them to make the decision and participate in the program.


Retirement is a big step and sometimes it helps to see it on paper. Gather the information you need to help make your decision.

To make things a little easier, we've put together a handy worksheet to help you calculate your retirement income. Each district establishes their parameters for their unique RetireRehire program, but our worksheet will help you track down the info you need so you can make an informed decision. Please contact your employer or ESI to confirm your information.
