‡ Deposit and lending products and services are provided by TIAA Bank®, a division of TIAA, FSB. Member FDIC. Equal Housing Lender. Over the course of your career, that’s how much it may take to potentially generate the income you need for retirement. Think about using TIAA’s online Retirement Advisor Tool to help you set goals and create a plan that may help achieve them. Plan to save at least enough to cover the essential and inevitable expenses, like healthcare, long after you retire.

Many participants enjoy the diversity of investing in mutual funds in their retirement plans. Please ask our marketers for the impressive alumni list to see which career paths former students at Touro Berlin took. In a survey in 2015 done for the Wissenschaftsrat accreditation, we learned that 100 %(!!!) of our MA graduates succeeded in working in their field of studies. One of the biggest advantages gained from Touro Berlin is the capability to effortless switch from mother tongue to fluent English at work. We have been ranked #1 in international experience of faculty and students. And it does not stop there – all administrative staff come from around the world, too.

Our mission is guided by a desire to improve lives—especially those from underserved communities, both here and abroad. Whether you study medicine, pharmacy, public health or education, you’ll graduate with a keener understanding of the inequities that shape society and the skills to take steps toward justice. Any guarantees under annuities issued by TIAA are subject to TIAA’s claims-paying ability. TIAA Traditional is a guaranteed insurance contract and not an investment for federal securities law purposes. Owning mutual funds can reduce risk through diversification and professional management, and allow you to potentially invest in a broad range of asset classes – U.S. and non-U.S. Stocks, bonds, and real estate – with smaller amounts of assets.

This material does not take into account any specific objectives or circumstances of any particular investor, or suggest any specific course of action. Investment decisions should be made based on the investor’s own objectives and circumstances. Other benefits may be available, such as pre-tax and tax-deferred contributing, which could help maximize your savings. Many financial planners estimate that you’ll need 80-90% of your pre-retirement income to maintain your lifestyle in retirement. As you get older, more of that money may need to go toward healthcare and other essential expenses. We try everything to adjust to your living circumstances, from voluntary summer schools to evening classes.

1Annuities are designed for retirement savings or for other long-term goals. They offer several payment options, including lifetime income. If you make a withdrawal prior to age 59½, you may be subject to a 10% penalty in addition to ordinary income tax. The value of a variable annuity is subject to market fluctuations and investment risk so that, if withdrawn, it may be worth more or less than its original cost. No, there is no tax advantage to owning variable annuities or mutual funds in your TIAA-funded retirement plan. This is a side effect of international studies which do not just mean lectures in English, but real internationality.

This works best if not only professors, but also administrative staff and some of the students have significant international life and work experience. English is not only the language of instruction, but also of all activities on campus. For non-native English speakers this means a perfect opportunity to develop authentic English skills parallel to their studies. During their exchange semesters, some Berlin students with initial moderate entry-test language skills even managed to win public speaking contests in New York. Generally speaking, riskier investments should be made when you’re younger, so you have plenty of time to potentially recoup losses. As you get older, you’ll likely want to shift to conservative investments with lower risk.

Does it still make sense in relation to your age and lifestyle? Strive for a smart balance of aggressive and conservative wlfeo investments that fit your needs. Learn ways to save and invest to help you prepare for your retirement.
