Log in to leave feedback.
Getting ready to retire? Then join us as we explore a retirement financial literacy program specifically designed for teachers. As we recognize the valuable contributions of our educators, it is imperative that they are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about their retirement planning and financial well-being. The primary objective of this session is to provide comprehensive support and education to teachers, enabling them to make decisions about retirement planning, investment strategies and financial management. By empowering teachers with the knowledge and tools to navigate their retirement options effectively, we aim to enhance their financial security and overall well-being during their post-teaching years. This session will cover essential retirement topics such as pension plans, retirement savings accounts, tax implications and investment strategies. Through the course of this presentation, we will address teachers’ unique circumstances, including their current financial situations, retirement goals and helping them understand their financial needs.
