Services We Offer to Arizona Teachers

Free Pension Review

State-run pension plans are still a strong option for teacher retirement income. But a pension can be complicated and hard to understand. Pension analysis with Appreciation Financial will help you answer these questions:

  • When should you start your pension?
  • Should you take your pension as an annuity or a lump sum?
  • In a buyout situation, should you take it or wait for a better deal?
  • What type of survivor option should you choose?

Arizona Teacher Retirement Planning

Public service employees have a unique set of retirement income options available to them. And if you are trying to optimize and diversify your portfolio, it can be difficult to sift through your choices and find the best ones for you. That's where we come in. At Appreciation Financial, our licensed agents have unique knowledge and experience helping teachers and public servants create a retirement plan specifically tailored to their needs. We'll provide you with a personalized analysis of your portfolio and advise you on the best ways to invest for a successful retirement.

403(b) Investment Advice

In today's financial landscape, a 403(b) is the best way for teachers to invest in their retirement. However, 403(b) investment options can be quite confusing if you're unfamiliar with the territory. Our experts can help you find a plan that will allow your money to grow for the future you imagine. Some public schools will match 403(b) contributions.

Living Benefit Life Insurance

Part of a smart retirement plan is preparing for the possibility of needing long-term care and racking up medical bills as you age. At Appreciation Financial, we'll take a look at your portfolio and see if investing in living benefit life insurance would help you prepare for these needs down the road. This type of life insurance allows the policyholder to access advanced payments should they need immediate help covering the cost of medical expenses.

Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS)

Public school employees, as well as other public servants in Arizona, have access to Arizona's State Retirement System. The ASRS is a defined benefit plan and is tax-qualified under section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code. It provides for a lifelong benefit based on the years of service earned, or worked, and your ending salary. Our agents in Arizona can help you maximize your assets in the ASR system while diversifying your portfolio outside of the system.
