Free Retirement Counseling Available

Free retirement counseling

Did you know that Vanderbilt employees who participate in the retirement plan are eligible for free retirement counseling? During your session, you will meet one-on-one with a licensed retirement planning counselor for an in-depth consultation regarding your retirement planning needs.

You can discuss the financial questions that matter most to you, such as:

· Am I saving enough? How can I save more?

· What are the benefits of participating in my retirement plan?

· How do I choose the right investments?

· Can I afford to retire when I want?

There is no cost for the session; it is a benefit of being a participant in the Vanderbilt University Retirement Plan.

To schedule an appointment, contact the retirement plan investment company directly using the phone number or email address provided. Your spouse or partner is welcome to attend your meeting.
