Weathering the Retirement Savings Storm
In this fluid and quickly changing environment, it’s natural to feel anxious. As with everything else today, the most important thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to be informed and to make good decisions.
The UT Retirement Program, in partnership with our five approved providers, stand by to assist you in any way we can during this rapidly changing market. Every one of our providers has begun utilizing alternatives to in-person meetings, such as virtual or phone meetings. If you wished to attend a retirement-related workshop, those workshops will be made rescheduled to a virtual space. If you have an appointment with an agent, or wish to make one, that agent will be happy to meet virtually or by phone. Most importantly, if you need to call for any retirement plan related question or concern, all five of our providers are open to receive your call and give you the help you need.
