Helpful information for this tax season

Here are a few tips and tricks to help you save and plan better!

    

When should I think about retirement?

The Department of Labor's (DOL) "Saving Matters" Campaign shares helpful information about saving for retirement through workplace retirement plans. Our university’s retirement plans are an important part of your total compensation package that will help build a more secure future.  The university also offers various ways to supplement your retirement savings on a pre-tax basis.  Check out this 2 page tip sheet from the DOL titled "Time Is On Your Side" that explains how new entrants into the workforce can benefit from retirement savings.

It's never too early to start thinking about your retirement, as "Retirement's Better in the Black."
