The Professional Staff Association (PSA) knows how important it is to invest in your future.

When its 2016 professional development survey revealed a need for more education on retirement and financial planning, PSA responded with upcoming brown-bag seminars on Ohio Deferred Compensation Tuesday, Feb. 28.

Ohio Deferred Compensation is a supplemental retirement plan for Ohio employees, and is one of the largest and lowest priced plans in the country.

Brent Tabler, account executive for Ohio Deferred Compensation, will speak at the sessions and inform employees on how they can enroll in the program.

Emily T. Creamer, assistant director for engineering transfer programs, said that the events are open to all members of the UT community interested in personal finance.

“Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch or coffee while they learn about the supplemental retirement plan,” Creamer said. “I’m looking forward to learning about an additional option. Since I’m in my early 30s, I have a long time until I retire. I do know that financial planning is important, which is why PSA decided to bring an expert on campus to share this information.”

Both sessions will take place Tuesday, Feb. 28.

A session from 11 a.m. to noon will be held in Collier Building Room 1210 on Health Science Campus, and another will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. in Rocket Hall Rocket Room on Main Campus.
