TIAA-CREF reps talk about retirement annuity options

Nov. 11, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Financing retirement can be a challenge even with Social Security and employer-sponsored plans. Those seeking a high level of financial independence, might consider investing in a Supplemental Retirement Annuity through a tax-deferred savings plan.

Western Michigan University faculty and staff members are invited to join TIAA-CREF representatives Tuesday, Nov. 12, for "Save on Taxes, Save for Retirement" to learn more about TIAA-CREF Supplemental Retirement Annuities, an easy and affordable way to build assets for the future. The plan allows employees to save money from their salaries on a pre-tax basis-possibly up to $20,000 per year. Discussion will also touch on related topics like asset allocation and IRAs.

Two sessions are offered at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Nov. 12 in the Bernhard Center's Brown and Gold Room. No reservations are necessary.
