PBS offers slate of investment, retirement events

By Staff

Do you know if you have saved enough to be secure in your retirement? Do you know how to maximize the retirement plans available to you through the university? Are you prepared?

CU Payroll & Benefit Services invites faculty and staff to the “Knowledge Is Financial Health” investment strategy seminars, preparing to retire seminars and investment fair. See this calendar to ensure you don't miss the dates scheduled for your campus.

At the investment strategy seminars, experts from our retirement plan investment sponsors will help you learn the steps for a more secure retirement. Topics will include: how to set your retirement goals, track your personal expenses, manage cash and risk, and develop investment strategies to meet those goals. Regardless of your age or where you are in your career or whether you are a novice or seasoned investor, these seminars will help get you there.

At the investment fair, investment sponsors will be available to address your specific questions regarding the investment opportunities available through the university's retirement savings plans. They will also have literature and fun giveaways that you can take with you.

The program at each campus will also include the popular preparing to retire seminars, specifically geared to those who are within three months to five years from retirement. PBS benefits professionals, as well as PERA and TIAA-CREF representatives, will lead you through a step-by-step guide for successful retirement under either the University of Colorado 401(a) plan or PERA.

At PBS, we understand that retirement planning may be challenging, confusing or downright scary, and we want to help. No matter what stage of your career you are in or where you are with your retirement savings, there should be something for you in this year's program.
