Savings Plus Presents - One and Done 1:30-2:30 p.m.
As a Savings Plus participant, employees have a choice of how they want to invest their retirement savings. Sound daunting? It doesn’t need to be. Savings Plus now offers Target Date Funds—a ready‐made investment solution. Faculty and staff determine when they will need to start withdrawing savings and select the Target Date Fund that corresponds closest to that year. Investment professionals select the investment mix and continue to manage the fund over time. In this workshop, faculty and staff will learn about the new Target Date Funds, determine if they are right, and see what resources are available to help them decide.

Valic Presents - Social Security and Your Retirement 2:30-3:30 p. m.
This workshop will go over the Cost of Retirement: The expectations of workers planning for retirement are often very different from the experiences current retirees report.
Social Security Benefits: It is important to understand the basics and benefits of the Social Security program.
Bridging the income gap: Social Security benefits are intended to merely supplement retirement income, so the individual should also consider other sources of income that can assist in building a bridge to help offset the gap left by Social Security.
