Retirement Savings Program Fair


Save the date! Human Resources is hosting a Retirement Savings Program Fair on Thursday, May 14 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in ENG 285/287. This is your opportunity to connect with the Tax Sheltered Annuity providers.

The CSU 403(b) Tax Sheltered Annuity (TSA) Program is a voluntary program that allows eligible CSU employees to save toward retirement by investing pre-tax contributions in tax-deferred investments in either annuities or mutual funds. There are five TSA providers: Valic, Fidelity Investments, Voya (formerly ING Life and Annuity), MetLife, and TIAA-Cref.

Savings Plus is the name of the 401(k) plan and 457 plan available to eligible State of California employees. These plans allow you to invest in your future by building a retirement savings account using automatic payroll deductions that go into investments you select.

It’s never too early to start planning for your future! Learn about your options, ask questions, and set up a one on one appointment with your provider. For more information contact Julie Inouye Wong at 4-2256/

ING Investments

Retirement planning is one subject that can usually benefit from a little continuing education. That’s why it makes sense to check in on your savings strategy periodically to make sure you’re still on track to meet your goals.

To help you do that, your ING Representative is coming to San Jose State University to provide you with a free, personalized analysis of your retirement plan. You’ll get answers to questions important to your financial future, such as:

• How much will you really need to meet your retirement objectives?
• Will your current strategy get you there?
• How can you fill any possible gaps?
• Social Security/Medicare Benefits, CalPERS, CalSTRS
