The Teach & Retire program has helped over 1,076 public school employees with their pension and retirement benefits. We can meet with you - privately - at your school on your break, lunchtime, after school, or even at your home. Our volunteers can answer your questions, help you with paperwork and avoid risky, high fee retirement plans. Thank you for helping our children.

Many salesmen who come into schools only do large group meetings at lunch. Administrative staff often have to field incoming phone calls, reserve space and pass out flyers. Representatives push products.

We are different.

Our on-on-one meetings are private and conveniently held throughout the day around your schedule. We send emails directly to staff and use an easy online scheduling system for appointments and reminders. 87% of the time we simply answer questions or help staff with paperwork. 13% of the time we get into more complex discussions of retirement options.
