For more information

If you think of more questions after the webinar or have more personal financial planning questions, you can schedule a virtual appointment with Mike or another Texa$aver RPA at no cost to you.

Mike and the Texa$aver RPAs are investment professionals, so they can provide you advice on reaching your financial goals–not just general information. They sometimes are referred to as Education Counselors. However, RPA is the more accurate name for them since they are licensed to advise you about steps to take toward retirement readiness.

An RPA can help you, as a plan participant, create and manage an investment portfolio based on your individual goals. If you don’t currently have a Texa$aver account, an RPA can explain the benefits of opening an account and provide advice on savings goals and investment allocation.

We introduced you to the six Texa$aver RPAs located around the state in this News About Your Benefits article. You can find contact information for the RPA in your area on the Texa$aver RPA map.

Remember, knowing what you should do with your money is one thing, but actually doing it is another. Use your Texa$aver benefit to take control of your financial future.
