Retirement Homeroom Website Helps Educators Plan

Retirement Homeroom

Montpelier, VT - (October 16, 2020)  Retirement Homeroom, a retirement planning website, has been enhanced and upgraded to help educators better understand their financial future.

Retirement Homeroom is an even more valuable resource in the unsettled world of the pandemic because educators have few opportunities to sit down with a professional to plan their retirements.

“National Life is dedicated to providing employees in schools and community colleges plans that enable them to retire with the dignity they deserve,” said Darlene Flagg, Vice President of Retirement Business at National Life. “We’re pleased to introduce enhancements to the national version of the Retirement Homeroom, along with sites specific to individual states, to help them reach their goals.”

Among its many features, Retirement Homeroom allows educators to see their state’s pension grade. Nationally, 46 percent of a teacher’s retirement income will come from personal savings, such as a 403(b) account or an annuity, because their public pensions won’t meet their needs. 1

There are tools on the site to help educators plan for how and how much to save so they will be able to retire comfortably, including profiles that visitors can use to compare themselves to educators in similar circumstances. “Our promise is to help educators understand their retirement future and to offer solutions that help them achieve their goals,” Mehran Assadi, Chairman, President and CEO of National Life.

National Life has a long history of helping educators plan for retirement. National Life is the No. 1 provider of fixed indexed annuities in employer plans2 and is the longest standing issuer of them. 3
