Calling All Southern California Peeps With School's First Fcu!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to decide on whether to use the CalSTRS Pension 2 or School's first Federal Credit Union Retirment Builder which is done through Nationwide. Here are the fees assosiated with School's first. Does anybody have any expereince with them? I switched over to them for my banking and have been very happy with the great customer service. They also have a lot of products deisgned specifically for teachers.

Broski,

 

Dig deeper and you will probably find that Nationwide is an insurance company. Also, anything that is patriotic, beneficial, or reliable is probably an insurance company. Let us know!!!! Regulars on this site know CalStrsP2 is a superior product. Bob

For nationwide, the fee is either .25% or .65% depending on the funds you choose. If you do look at the funds, the one that charges a lower expense ratio will have the 0.65% fee and the higher expense ratio will have the 0.25% fee.

 

For P2, it's 0.25% admin fee + expense ratio of the funds. The funds here have lower expense ratio. Also, the fund choices seems better even though there are more fund choices in nationwide.
