To help you make decisions about your retirement investments, JHU has partnered with Marsh McLennan Agency (MMA), an independent investment advisor. Along with retirement plan advice and education, MMA can assist current JHU employees with other personal finance topics, including how to create a budget, plan for a big expense, and the best time to claim Social Security.

Through MMA’s Prosper Wise website, you can schedule time to meet virtually with a financial coach who is trained in financial planning. MMA’s coaches can help you understand how the changes to JHU’s retirement plans will affect you. They can also work with you to select investments that fit your individual goals and personal preferences. MMA coaches are licensed professionals with expertise in retirement plans, investing, and financial education. They’re unbiased and do not sell products or receive commissions.

Register below for a virtual session with an MMA Prosper Wise financial coach at no cost to you. During the 25-minute session, you and your coach can review your current investment portfolio, discuss your tolerance for risk, map out long-term retirement strategies, including rollover options, and much more.
