The Wayne State University School of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development welcomes all members of our community to join us for a special interactive discussion:

"Retirement Planning"

Evaluating where you are and where you want to be

Join TIAA Financial Consultant, Chris Burgess, for a savings and investment overview. During this session, you will:

  • Get to know your investing personality and how it could impact the way you allocate your assets.
  • Check your savings progress. If you’re not where you need to be, there are ways you can catch up.
  • See what else you should consider—like taxes, inflation and what an ordinary day in retirement will look like.

 The financial decisions you make today, will allow your focus to remain on the important academic, research, clinical and service contributions you are making tommorow.
