2:00 pm -   3:00 pm:            ERS - TexaSaver 457

To have a comfortable retirement income, you cannot rely on a pension plan and Social Security alone. Instead, you will need to plan, invest and make good use of tax-advantaged savings like the Texa$aver program. With the Texa$aver voluntary retirement savings program, you can increase your personal retirement savings to bridge the financial gap as well as weather inflation and things like increased medical expenses as you age.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions and receive the information you will need to make informed decisions about your eventual retirement.
