Retirement Planning Sessions

Barbara Jean Conneely, Benefits Manager for the Human Resources Office, will be conducting information sessions to discuss retirement planning from UMass Boston. Group discussions will cover State Retirement Applications, GIC/Medicare options and other retirement information for UMass Boston retirees. These sessions are most beneficial for those who are considering retirement within the next two years*.

Group discussions will take place in the Quinn Administration Building, 3rd Floor, Room 308.

*We would suggest calling the State Retirement Board at 617.367.7770, asking for a retirement counselor and requesting a retirement estimate to be mailed to your home address before attending one of the group discussions.
 

403B Enhancement

The University will be moving to a new recordkeeping model and plan design that will include a much smaller investment lineup. These changes will impact all plan participants. Therefore, we view this as a great opportunity and encourage all employees to re‐engage in your retirement planning and to take a fresh look at your savings rate and investment choices. Fidelity Retirement Planners will be on‐site starting the week of February 8 to deliver Plan Enhancement presentations that highlight the upcoming changes to the 403(b) Plan. They will also be available for scheduled one‐on‐one consultations at no additional cost to you.
