Actively managing our personal finances can be a daunting task….and many of us put it off out of fear, lack of confidence in our knowledge, or due to time constraints.  But when it comes to the retirement plan available to you through your employer, the consequences of delaying action can be significant.

Having access to a tax saving 403(b) plan already gives you an advantage that most workers in the U.S. will never have.  Benefits such as these are dwindling as employers search for ways to cut costs, so you should take advantage of this option while you can.

However, not all 403(b) plans are created equal!

How can you tell if yours is a good plan or a poor one? (Learn about the numerous reports documenting how school administrators have made unwise choices on behalf of their employees.) 

What can you do if you discover that it is not up to par?

This webinar will answer these and many more questions you may have such as:

  • How and when should you start taking money out of your plan?
  • Can you have both a retirement plan and an IRA?
  • Should you invest in stock funds or bond funds?
  • If your spouse has a better retirement plan, what should you do to maximize the benefits to your household?

This webinar will guide you through the maze of decisions and will simplify terms such as asset allocation strategy, rebalancing, plan expense ratios, matching contributions from employer, dollar cost averaging, and many more.

The main goal of this webinar is to help you—or those you teach—make the best decisions for your future.
