Are you saving enough today for a better tomorrow? Please join us in participating in National Save for Retirement Week by sharing our Save for Retirement Week calendar with your employees.

The Department of Retirement Systems would like to encourage you to participate in the National Save for Retirement Week. This event calls on all employees to take full advantage of their employer's retirement plans - including deferred compensation programs. Sharing our calendar and promoting National Save for Retirement Week provides your organization with the opportunity to encourage a culture of saving for your employees.

Although most employees know that they should plan for retirement, many simply don't know where to start. We developed our calendar with the goal of helping members start or revisit their planning. It assigns retirement planning tasks to each day during National Save for Retirement Week and provides links to many retirement planning resources. Retirement planning is a journey and this calendar may provide the first step on that journey for many employees.

Please email our Save for Retirement Week calendar to your employees and consider posting to your intranet or printing and placing in your break rooms. Together we can help employees plan for their future. Thank you for your support.
