Why You Need The CRSP 403(b)

Focus on your Future

The Concordia Retirement Savings Plan 403(b) is a crucial piece in building your foundation for a secure retirement. It works together with the Concordia Retirement Plan pension fund and Social Security to provide you peace of mind now and in the future.

The Top 3 reasons to save in the 403(b):

  • It adds up: Savings, no matter how small your contribution, accumulate throughout the years. And remember: If you have two incomes in your family now, you should plan to replace both in retirement.
  • Experienced investors: No need to be an expert yourself. Experienced investors with proven track records are ready to work for you.
  • Competitive low rates and fees: That means more of your money stays with your tax-advantaged investments.

You can change your contribution amount any time. So start saving or increase your savings today!
