Higher Education . . . For Your Finances

For many of us, personal finance can be a challenging—even intimidating—subject. But by learning the essentials of retirement planning, the mysteries surrounding concepts like 403(b) retirement plans, mutual funds, and annuities will disappear—helping us to expand our financial knowledge and make the most of our finances.

To make increasing your financial know-how easy and fun, the University of Rochester and TIAA-CREF have teamed up to create the Financial Essentials Program.   

  • The Program includes a series of financial workshops conducted by TIAA-CREF that offer useful, practical ideas on how to save and invest with confidence:
