A career with a governmental entity, institution of higher education or the armed forces brings with it specific considerations for your financial future. The choice you made to serve the common good has given you financial opportunities as well as challenges. At The Trust Company, we appreciate your service, and we have the expertise to evaluate the entirety of your situation. Whether you’re planning for upcoming career transitions, retirement, or your children’s educational costs, we can serve you in a variety of ways. And remember: We’re right here, where you live. Having a local advisor who will sit down with you any time brings our clients real peace of mind. University Professionals The health of your retirement plan is vital for your financial well-being. The Trust Company is an approved advisor for some retirement plans in both the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) and the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education systems (CBHE). You will benefit from our decades of experience in working with hundreds of higher education faculty, classified and unclassified staff members — we’re a “walking encyclopedia” of the nuances of these plans, including state civil service plans such as KPERS and MOSERS. We can function at different levels to help you, in whatever way makes the most sense for your situation. For instance, we can simply look at your account status and advise you on recommended changes. Or, we can actively manage your account on your behalf. If you’ve moved among different higher education or state retirement plans during your career — a very common situation — we can advise on the ins and outs of these plans and help you navigate them. Military and Government Professionals Whether you’re a military member, federal employee or a retiree, your federal retirement plan is a linchpin of your future financial security. At The Trust Company, we have a depth of experience that will serve you well, no matter what stage of your life or career you’re in. Together, we can create a plan that takes into account your time in service, your retirement funds, life insurance plans, health plans and other government benefits. We’ll assist with analysis of the retirement options and plans available to you. And we’ll work with you to make the best choices to ensure your retirement package supports your overall financial plan.
