No matter where you are in life - just getting started or planning for retirement - a session with a financial consultant can help you create a unique plan for your goals. And, it's at no additional cost as a part of your retirement plan. You’ll get answers to these questions and more:

  • Am I invested in the right mix of investments to help meet my goals?
  • Am I saving enough to create the retirement income I need?
  • How do I take income from my retirement account once I stop working?
  • How do I plan for short-term goals such as saving for a house or education expenses?
  • How do I manage debt, save money and balance various financial priorities at the same time?

CCRI's TIAA representative, Dan Samson, will be on campus on the following dates. Register for a session to get an action plan created especially for you. Register at or call 800-732-8353 weekdays, 8am to 8pm (ET).
