Education and Retirement Planning Services

Here at Portland State University, we have many options to educate and empower our employees to establish a retirement portfolio that is right for you and your family. There are many reasons why people don’t save for retirement. The top six are listed below:

  1. “I don’t know how”
  2. “I don’t want to think about it”
  3. “Between my savings and my 401(k), I’ll be fine”
  4. “The Government will take care of me”
  5. “My finances are a mess”
  6. “I don’t have enough money to get started”
