Got questions about your Cal-STRS, 403(b) or 457 plan?

Patti Rose Fagan has answers.

Cal-STRS Retirement PlanningPatti helps educators plan for a secure retirement.

With a variety of financial resources are available, I help California educators successfully navigate their Cal-STRS and 403b options, so they can create a customized blueprint to get them to their retirement goals faster.

Step One – Attend a Maximizing Cal-STRS Retirement Seminar

As a California educator, the first step in planning for your future is to understand how your Cal-STRS (California State Teachers Retirement System) pension works. A private study indicates that 2 out of 3 teachers do not fully understand their retirement pension program.

By attending my seminar you’ll begin to master the basics of planning for a financially secure retirement. Even if all you do is attend the retirement planning seminar, you will walk away with a wealth of knowledge, and a better understanding of how Cal-STRS and 403(b) plans work.

Step Two – Create Your Personal Financial Lesson Plan

You’ve probably written hundreds of lesson plans throughout your career. When it comes to your financial future, I want to help you prepare the lesson plan that really counts – YOUR financial lesson plan.

Sitting down one-on-one with me can help ensure that you have the means to retire with enough savings so that you won’t outlive your money. Yes, STRS is a lifetime pension, but it will probably provide only 60-70% of your retirement income. Depending on how many years of service you have, it could provide less.

That’s why you need additional assets to cover the tax and the other 30-40% of income needed. Additionally, you’ll need a plan for how to cover healthcare cost, because Medicare and health insurance do not cover Long Term Care costs.

Together, we’ll build a retirement roadmap tailored to your specific situation that will provide the additional security you need, and carry you on the path to your financial dreams.

You’ll get the help you need in your area of concern….
