Our country’s teachers are everyday heroes whose hard work and dedication are vital to cultivating our future leaders and ensuring America’s continued strength.
The SEC is committed to making America’s securities markets stronger and safer for our nation’s educators, including by helping them become better informed about the investing options available to them.
When it comes to saving for retirement, teachers have big decisions to make, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission wants to help. We offer tools and resources to help teachers learn more about the 403(b) and 457(b) retirement plans that are commonly offered by public school districts.
Teachers can find many that are geared just for them on our "Saving And Investing Resources For Teachers" page.
As part of the SEC’s ongoing investor education efforts, we launched the Teachers’ Initiative in 2019 to ensure that public school educators understand the financial services they are getting, the costs associated with those financial services, and how to reach us if something sounds too good to be true.
Hear SEC Chairman Jay Clayton share his personal advice to teachers in a recent podcast.
