Reviews For Teach and Retire Rich - Talking teacher retirement savings plans.

I read Teach and Retire Rich back in 2005 and I set my world on FIRE. We are hard savers and learn tips and trick in every episode. Dan and Scott are advocates for teachers across the country. Sharks have no place in our schools.
Finally a place specifically geared to teachers with a 403b and 457b. Our circumstances are so different having pension options. Enjoyed the pace, information and thoughts. Will recommend to my peers.
One of the only podcasts that has talked about 457B retirement plans! Love it
I love this podcast and learn so much with every episode I listen to. What really sets it apart is the sincere passion the host has for educating teachers (and others) about their 403b and other parts of their financial life. Very genuine! I was so thrilled to hear that he is now going to be doing this full time with a partnership with Next Gen Personal Finance! Jackie
Great information for Certificated & Classified employees. This podcast gave me the tools to research my current 403b plan and to avoid the all to common pitfalls of high fees low quality products in the Wild Wild West of 403b’s.
Thank you so much for creating this podcast! I have learned more about my retirement options through your podcast than I learned in 19 years as an educator. Your shows have pushed my thinking on the meaning of retirement, encouraged me to become more frugal and helped me make multiple small choices that will maximize my retirement income. Thank you for making me a better steward of my resources and equipping me with the knowledge to make wiser choices that strengthen my financial position.
This is a MUST if you are a teacher, if you are married to a teacher, or have any type of relationship with a teacher. The hosts speak in regular terms (NOT Wall Street jargon). One is a teacher and the other, a financial planner, is married to a teacher. It is the best podcast I listen to.
Best resource around for understanding your pension and 403b options. The first four podcasts should be required listening for all teachers. I purchased two copies of the book Teach and Retire Rich. One I have on my bookshelf. The other one I have been circulating through my building. Spread the word!
This podcast is an absolute must listen if you are planning on properly saving for retirement, especially if you are in a field like education which offers a 403(b) plan . Dan and Scott do a wonderful job of discussing the aspects of all types of retirement plans and really go in-depth about what teachers need to know when beginning to plan for their retirement savings. This is exactly the kind of podcast that I wish I had listened to when I first started teaching because it would have saved me THOUSANDS in fees and expenses. Plus, you can clearly tell that these guys are just terrific people who are putting in the time and effort describing these issues so that educators and others are not taken advantage of by poor investment options. And as an added bonus, their commentary and interviews are really funny and entertaining. If you are in education and are thinking about or currently investing through a 403(b) or IRA, please do yourself a financial favor and listen to this podcast!
