Why keep your money in the CRSP 403(b)?
Remember, you don’t have to begin taking money from your account as soon as you retire, nor do you have to rollover your funds into an IRA or other account. There are many advantages to keeping your money in the CRSP through your retirement years.
The pension benefits you receive from the Concordia Retirement Plan are taxable. While everyone’s taxable situation is unique, we’re abe to provide some general information about the taxation of retirement benefits.
