Most of the people teaching TM outside of Fairfield have income or support from parents or inheritances. The TMO does provide some of them with a real salary and sometimes housing, but not really enough to live on and certainly not enough to save a dime for the soon to be here golden years. In the MUM realm, I am not sure what those people have coming to them for retirement. I think the top people are doing just fine and will be taken care of or have already had accounts set up. As for professors and long time staff.....not sure.
