Spouses and anyone who help the employee make financial decisions are encouraged and welcome to attend with the employee.

There's no time like the present to save for the future. Sometimes it's hard to think about retirement when you're early in your career. The truth is, that's when thinking ahead can do the most good. It all starts with some practical knowledge.

TIAA-CREF's workshop leaders will help you get ahead of your retirement saving with some tools and advice you can use right now:

  • Learn the real effect of time on money thanks to compounding and dollar-cost averaging.
  • Discover the differences between good and bad debt.
  • Learn the benefits of starting to contribute to your employer-sponsored retirement plan now.
  • See how budgeting can find money — and help you save it.
