This program is designed for employees hired into the following positions: executive, continuing lecturers, faculty, fire/police admin and management, professional, management and M/P management.
  • The Purdue Matching Retirement and Savings Plans (PMRS) – The PMRS program – specific to employees hired into a service or support position on or after Sept. 9, 2013 – includes two components: a 403(b) Base Defined Contribution Plan with a base contribution from the University, in addition to a matching contribution, if the employee participates in saving for retirement through the 403(b) Voluntary savings plan. 

Tosin Ratchford, retirement planner and registered securities and licensed insurance representative at Fidelity, will present information to help attendees:

  • Learn how much they may need to save for retirement.
