Who We Are


Hey, we get it. You can barely make rent this month, let alone put away the recommended 10% of your income toward retirement—this somewhat hard-to-wrap-your-head-around concept that you know is real, but just seems so far off right now. Plus, you've got a life in the here and now that needs your attention. What's the right balance? Well, that's where we step in.

Born under the roof of the Colorado Public Employees' Retirement Association (PERA), The Dime helps Colorado’s young public workforce (and friends) strengthen their financial literacy so they can live their best life now and in the future. With a belief that preparing for retirement doesn’t have to be boring or taxing (no pun intended), we want to empower you to achieve your short and long-term goals; but we also get that money isn't everything, and that ultimately, it's just a means to helping achieve the fulfillment you seek through the experiences and relationships that impact your life today and tomorrow. So, whether you want to reel in your spending, buy your first house, learn to invest, or yes, save for retirement—or you want to cross off the next 14er, get that promotion, or try the hot new poke place, we've got you covered: from paycheck to purpose.
