Financial Well-Being Resources

Can you use some assistance in the area of financial and retirement preparedness? Partnering with our retirement providers, TIAA-CREF, Fidelity, ICMA-RC and VRS as well as financial providers such as Apple Federal Credit Union and others with expertise to share, we have lined up a comprehensive opportunity for faculty and staff to delve into those personal financial areas where they could use a hand. Everything from budgeting and saving to investing, annuities, retirement, home buying, college savings and more.

There are in-person sessions, as well as online sessions. Join us live or watch a session at your convenience, when and where it works for you. In person sessions will be videoconferenced to Arlington and Prince William. In addition to sessions and webinars, there are also a host of tools on the site. We’re hoping you will think of the site as a gateway to rounding out your personal financial knowledge. There are more classes in the works, so please check back. To register for these classes, please visit http://hr.gmu.edu/learning/hr.php.

Don’t forget to line up your individual session with representatives from TIAA-CREF, Fidelity or ICMA-RC. They are all on campus throughout the year. For dates and times, and to schedule an appointment visit Individual Counseling Sessions.
