EMPOWER OUR TEACHERS Workshop
This very question: “Can you retire comfortably on 60% of your current pay?”, was the central focus recently in San Diego at a conference of educators from around the country. The recognition that the teachers in schools, be they private or public, in the United States, confront a crisis of underfunded pension accounts for their futures.
The mission is to educate educators and all school system employees about 403(b) plans and strategies and to promote retirement with dignity. It is a national shame that the teacher retirement funding in 41 states is insufficient.
