washateria started following Need help- Chicago Public School System 403B and 457 Plans
washateria posted a topic in 457 ForumHi Everyone, I am new to the board. I want to start out by saying how grateful I am in advance for this resource and for any help you can provide. My wife is a new teacher in Chicago Public School system and we are looking at her investment options. We apparently only have two choices -- VOYA and VALIC. I took a cursury glance at these. Good option seemed to be in Valic---Vanguard Total Bond Market Index 30% and Fidelity Total Market Index Inv 70%. Second choice option: Vanguard Target Retirement Funds but the fees are much higher than I liked. I am not sure if these are in the 457 plan or the 403b Plan My wife would rather have flexiblity of 457 if it is possible. Would love to hear what you guys think of the Chicago Public School District Options. Thank you very much in advance. -Kristy VOYA website VALIC website Fund Overview – Provides the investment objective, holdings, a breakdown of the fund's assets by industry, the risk level, and the fund manager for each of your available investment options.
