• Vermont offers fossil-free retirement option
     | August 30,2014

    MONTPELIER ó Vermont teachers now have the option of investing some of their retirement savings in fossil-free mutual funds.

    State Treasurer Beth Pearce said the addition of the 403(b) option was approved by the Vermont State Teachersí Retirement System board of trustees at its August meeting.

    Pearce said the option gives more choices to teachers who want to make socially responsible investments.

    The plan is available to teachers in all Vermont supervisory unions.

    In February the same option was made available to state employees.
