Consultations with Fidelity will continue to take place. When you schedule a meeting it will take place via phone versus in person. One-on-one consultations are geared toward retirement planning guidance, such as comparing investment choices, developing a retirement income plan, or consolidating multiple retirement accounts. Your needs may be better met by a live webinar, the resources available on our financial wellness webpage, or a phone call to Fidelity or TIAA, where experts can help with basic financial planning questions or assist you in getting started with your savings.
Explore your financial future. Sign up for a free one-on-one consultation with a retirement representative from Fidelity or TIAA. Fidelity is the administrator for the university’s Voluntary Retirement Plans (VRPs). The VRPs include options to enroll in 403(b), 457(b), or 401(a) Supplemental Retirement Plans, depending on your eligibility. TIAA provides investment options for the 403(b) plan, which is why you might want to schedule a one-on-one with one of their representatives.
What is a one-on-one consultation?

- Ask questions about saving for retirement and other financial goals
