What if you do not have enough money for a comfortable retirement that could last decades? Should you be contributing more to your Texa$averSM 401(k) / 457 Program account each month? What will the stock market do to your investments? 

It’s exhausting, isn’t it? Fortunately, the Texa$aver program (administered by Empower Retirement) has financial advisors available to help you.

Talk with a pro

Whether you’re a Texa$aver participant or still thinking about it, you can connect with a Texa$aver Retirement Plan Advisor (RPA) at no cost to yourself and get the financial answers you need. 

Who are the Texa$aver Retirement Plan Advisors? What can they do for me?

Texa$aver RPAs are investment professionals who can provide you advice—not just information—on reaching your financial goals. They sometimes are referred to as Education Counselors. However, RPA is the more accurate name for them since they are licensed to advise you about steps to take toward retirement readiness. 

Texa$aver RPAs can help you, as a plan participant, create and manage an investment portfolio based on your individual goals. They can provide you guidance on reaching your retirement goals, including savings rate, withdrawal strategy and investment allocation. 

Texa$aver RPAs can also project your future retirement income from all sources, including the ERS Retirement Trust Fund, Social Security, the Texa$aver program and personal retirement accounts like IRAs. 

  • Not sure when you should retire? A Texa$aver RPA can help you determine a possible retirement age.

  • Wondering where your money will come from during retirement? A Texa$aver RPA can help you project your future retirement income from all sources, including the ERS Retirement Trust Fund, Social Security, the Texa$aver program and personal retirement accounts like IRAs.
  • Uncertain about your retirement contributions level? A Texa$aver RPA can provide guidance on reaching your retirement goals, including savings rate, withdrawal strategy and investment allocation.

If you don’t currently have a Texa$aver account, an RPA can explain the benefits of opening an account and provide advice on savings goals and investment allocation.
