Saving for the Future

What will retirement mean for you?

Today you are busy doing His work. One day, whether it’s right around the corner or far off, you’ll transition to a new phase of life – retirement. Instead of earning a paycheck from your employer, you’ll receive retirement income.

Where will it come from?

Your monthly pension amount along with Social Security most likely will not meet your spending needs.  The CRSP 403(b) helps fill that Savings Gap.


The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Pension Benefits

Your Concordia Retirement Plan pension benefits are based on your salary and length of service. Once you begin receiving your monthly income benefits, the amount will stay the same throughout your lifetime, and could also provide benefits to your surviving spouse. This is a good foundation, but it may not be enough to sustain you throughout your retirement. You may need retirement savings to help make up the difference between your retirement income and your expenses.
