Marquette University offers employees the opportunity to save for retirement on a tax-advantaged basis through the Marquette University Retirement 403(b) Plan. While 401(k) Plans are offered to those working at “for-profit” organizations, 403(b) retirement plans are offered to those working at certain “tax-exempt or not-for-profit organizations” such as educational institutions. TIAA administers the Retirement Plan on behalf of Marquette University.

In addition, and to help with your financial plan, Marquette has partnered with external organizations that can guide you on saving for retirement, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and more.

Their employee presentation materials are included below. While Marquette does not attempt to make exclusive endorsements of financial advisors, the information contained within these presentations will provide a framework for you to use in your financial planning. Your decision about using an advisor (or not) is totally up to you.
