Retire 101 Series webpage header.png


Although your school system may offer a generous pension plan for your teachers and employees, a financial gap typically occurs once they retire. More importantly, many need to understand how your program works. That is why ValuTeachers has created a Retirement 101 Education Workshop Series. The series has been designed with the assistance of former educators to help all employees in the K–12 space achieve one goal: secure their retirement dreams!

By offering the ValuTeachers Retire 101 series in your schools just four times a year, you are showing your educators that you care about their financial well-being. That's because we systemically educate your school employees so they can meet their retirement goals no matter what they may be.


Our series includes details about your state teacher retirement system, 403(b)/457(b), IRAs., and other pre-tax savings options. We also include information and guidance about Deferred Retirement Option Programs and opportunities to receive income for life.


Our presentations in the series are short yet informative. Our presentation will last between three and ten minutes,  depending on the workshop. After each of these presentations, your ValuTeachers Associate will remain on location and offer individual sessions to answer any questions and help each school employee with their retirement journey.
