  1. Unfortunately, the district is unwilling to add any more vendors. I was told that they only had Nationwide up until this year and since they have added all the others they don't feel like they need to add any more.
  2. Tony, I don't feel that way at all. In fact, you and this forum have opened my eyes to a lot. I am a business teacher and am sorely lacking in investment knowledge. I can calculate all of the ratios for something like this, but do you think they ever taught us what they actually mean or how to use them? Of course not. It is a shame that I will have an MBA in less than a year and I still don't feel any more prepared than I did before. I am not an impatient person so I do not have a problem waiting. People make mistakes when they get in a hurry and essentially ruin their futures. I just ordered the book and I look forward to reading it.
  3. What makes Aspire better than the rest? Unfortunately, we just got a new business manager this year so I hope that he is in the groove with these kinds of things. Thanks for all of your help, everyone. I'm going to do some reading today when I get a chance and I'll chime back in with any questions that I have.
  4. Thanks for the information. I'm in PA. What specifically should I be asking for when I call these companies for information? Do they offer some kind of a "quick facts" sheet that makes it easier to compare? It looks like PA has a deferred compensation plan: http://sers.pa.gov/DeferredCompensationPlan.html I can't seem to find if it is available for teachers, though.
  5. Hi Everyone, I'm really glad that I've found this forum. I recently got hired full time at a school district where I've been half-time for three years now. Of course, Now I want to invest in my 403b and we don't have many choices. The consulting group is TSA and the vendors offered are: VALIC AXA Equitable Life Horace Mann Kades-Margolis Nationwide Thanks for any advice that you may have on choosing one of these!
