Samantha Silberstein is a Certified Financial Planner, Certified Student Loan Professional, and Enrolled Agent. As a financial consultant, she works with employees from non-profit and higher education organizations. Her day-to-day is filled with one-on-one conversations about 401(k)s, 403(b)s, ERISA guidelines, IRAs, student loans, tracking spending, creating budgets, debt repayment strategies, pretax/Roth contributions/savings, and other non-retirement saving options/vehicles.
