New Retirement Planning Seminars Set
INFORMED PLANNING now can provide a more comfortable retirement in five, ten, or 25 years, whenever you are ready. The supplemental 403(b) plan offered by the University provides the opportunity to enhance your retirement benefits, but only if you participate. University Human Resources and University and Payroll Benefits Services are offering a series of new retirement planning seminars to University employees. 

RECEIVE THE latest information and tools on a variety of topics that include setting financial goals, building an investment mix, and managing your accounts in the midst of change. Representatives from Fidelity and TIAA-CREF, the vendors for the University of Illinois Supplemental 403(b) Retirement Plan, and representatives from the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) will lead the seminar discussions.
