Learn about TSA Supplemental Retirement Savings

The UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) Program is a voluntary, supplemental retirement savings program that allows employees to invest a portion of their income on a pre-tax basis, after-tax (Roth) basis, or a combination of both. A one-on-one counseling session with a financial representative can help you learn about the TSA program. Sessions are offered at a variety of campus locations in January and February. Having an individual counseling session does not obligate you to contribute to the TSA or open an account. You can learn more at a UW TSA 403(b) Workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 1–2 p.m. at 21 North Park Street, room 1106. Visit to register for the workshop.
