Counseling Sessions

The UO Benefits office extends to you an invitation to receive one-to-one financial counseling from an investment adviser.  This is an excellent opportunity to build a relationship with a Financial Planner as you save for retirement.

A limited number of counseling sessions are offered on campus, with new dates published about every three months.  These sessions tend to book quickly.  If you are unable to schedule a one-to-one meeting, contact the retirement plan administrator to discuss options.
