Saving for Your Future Seminar – May 9 Free for MTI Members!

Do you know why saving early and often is important?

Join MTI and WEA Member Benefits as we explore reasons to save and what you need to think about in this 30-minute crash course. Most Wisconsin public school employees can expect their retirement income to come from three sources: WRS (the Wisconsin Retirement System pension), Social Security, and personal savings. Even though your pension benefit provides an excellent head start, Social Security and WRS might not be enough.

Here’s what we will cover in this not-to-be missed session:

  • Why you need more than WRS and Social Security

  • The importance of personal savings

  • The difference between a 403(b) and an IRA

  • Pretax versus Roth options

  • Investment choices

  • Contribution limits

  • Fees

  • Easy steps to start saving for your future

Whether you just beginning your career or are nearing the end of it, there is something for you. Join us for this crash course and get a better idea of how your pension and personal savings work to fill your retirement savings gap.

MTI is once again partnering with WEA Member Benefits – the premier provider of financial products and services for Wisconsin public school employees – to enhance your financial well-being. All events are held at WEA Member Benefits (660 John Nolen Drive, Madison).
