New kid in school

September 17, 2015

You're a couple of weeks into your teaching career and chances are you feel like you're getting the hang of lesson plans, recess supervision and bus duty.

We know retirement isn't exactly around the corner for you, but we're here throughout your career to help you maximize what will likely become your largest financial asset.

Here are three easy things you can do today to get you on your way:

  1. Connect with us on social. Join us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our YouTube channel. We'll share tips and you'll also benefit from other teachers' experiences as they share their insights through these channels.
  2. Sign up for a Teachers' account. Give our Member Hotline (1-800-668-0105) a call and we'll set you up. You can explore all of the features of your plan, learn about transferring credit, buying back a leave and even use the pension calculator to start creating different retirement scenarios.
  3. Many of our new members start out as occasional teachers. If you're one of them, download Classtime, our app to help you keep track of where and when you work, as well as when you get paid.
