Coming Soon: online retirement planning resources

UW faculty and staff considering retirement come to Total Benefits with many questions—from needing to understand financial impacts, healthcare options, social security to figuring out when and how to tell their department about this life changing decision.

Beginning June 30, Total Benefits will offer employees easier access to our popular retirement workshops with on-demand webinars and livestream options. The online options allow for more anonymity for those who prefer to keep their pre-retirement planning process confidential and allows spouses and partners easy access if they are helping to make retirement-related choices.

In addition, employees needing more specialized retirement planning assistance will be able to schedule in-person or phone appointments with the retirement consultants during regularly scheduled office hours.

Thank you to the UW Retirement Association and the Faculty Council on Benefits & Retirement for their guidance on this project.
