Are You Saving Enough for Your Retirement?

After using one of the many online retirement planning calculators available today, you may have discovered that you’ll need additional assets at retirement. Consider participating in one or both of the voluntary retirement plans, the Optional Retirement Plan or the Section 457 Deferred Compensation Plan. These tax-deferred plans allow you to save money above what you are saving in the Faculty Retirement Plan or MSRS.

Both the Optional Retirement Plan and the Section 457 Deferred Compensation Plan are available to all University employees, and you can enroll at any time. It's never too late to start investing for your retirement!
