Are you saving enough today for a better tomorrow?

Please join us as we prepare for National Save for Retirement Week, October 16 – 22, 2011.

Most of your employees know they should plan for retirement, but many simply don’t know where to start. You can help them take the first step by encouraging participation in this week-long, information-packed event. National Save for Retirement Week, is congressionally endorsed, and calls on all employees to take full advantage of their employer’s retirement plans – including deferred compensation programs. 

It’s easy to get the word out: Start with reminding your employees about the different retirement benefits you have available that support saving. Next, let them know that DRS will post additional resources on our website beginning October 16 under News and Announcements. Besides a helpful calendar on our site that assigns retirement planning tasks each day, your employees will also have access to other educational tools and resources.

We encourage you to share National Save for Retirement Week. Save the date and help your employees save for a better tomorrow.
