Free Retirement Guidance Series Fall 2012

Are you saving enough for retirement? Do you have the right investment mix? Will your retirement savings allow you maintain your current quality of life?

Beginning in the month of October, Human Resource Services will host a series of sessions that will answer these questions and more. 

Each session will feature a presentation by a representative from one of the university’s five authorized retirement plan providers, and end with a brief question and answer period.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to explore the different retirement options available to both faculty and staff, and learn a wealth of additional information about preparing for your retirement.

Please register for each session through TXCLASS; the class listings are displayed next to the scheduled presentations below.  The classes are from noon to 1 p.m., feel free to bring your own lunch to the sessions.

Remember, even if you cannot attend these sessions, it is possible to set up one-on-one consultations with the provider representatives.  Please review the Retirement Provider Appointments webpage for contact information and instructions.
