tiaa-cref-logo-80PULLMAN, Wash. – Retirement presentations for participants in the Washington State University Retirement Plan (WSURP) will be offered by Human Resource Services and TIAA-CREF on Wednesday, Jan. 22, in Lighty 405.

During the first hour, HRS personnel will review: retiree medical/dental insurance options; the VEBA medical expense benefit; life insurance options; tax deferring payouts and the supplemental retirement plan.

Representatives from TIAA-CREF will then discuss how they can provide objective advice about asset allocation based on individual needs, as well as how to obtain a personalized action plan consisting of retirement income options, funding the financial strategy that fits personal needs and keeping retirement investing on track.

Mid-career benefit review, intended for employees who have been with WSU for a while and would like a review of their benefits and reminders of when they may want to make adjustments, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
