RPA’s service model is built around you. We understand that people invest differently. You need to be able to invest for retirement in the way that’s most comfortable for you. Our decades of experience with public employees have taught us that there are generally three types of investors: do it myself, help me do it, do it for me. Do you see yourself in one of these categories?

Regardless of what category you see yourself in, you need to ask yourself if your investment allocation matches your risk tolerance, time horizon, and long-term goals.

Do It For Me

More and more participants are asking “Can you just do this for me?” and the answer is YES! Retirement Plan Advisors’ PortfolioPlus program is an optional, fee-based managed account specifically designed for public sector retirement plans. With PortfolioPlus, you delegate the ongoing responsibility of managing your retirement account to the investment professionals at RPA. Through our tactical approach to asset allocation and investment due diligence, we strive to increase return while managing risk.

How does my plan work?

Your employer-sponsored retirement plan is an important supplement to pension and Social Security benefits for public employees. Contributions are made through the ease of payroll deduction. You may defer a portion of your current salary on a pre-tax basis, where earnings accumulate tax-deferred and withdrawals are taxed as ordinary income; or via Roth (after-tax) contributions, where earnings accumulate tax-deferred and qualifying distributions are tax-free.


457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan

403(b) Defined Contribution Plan

401(a) Retirement Plan


    Whether you’re in public safety, public works or administration, we understand your situation. We’ve spent our entire professional careers working with people just like you.
