It’s closer than you think.

Please join us as we prepare for National Save for Retirement Week, October 21-27, 2012.

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 additional resources will be posted on our website beginning October 21 under What’s New. In addition to a fresh video added to the website each day, your employees will also have access to other educational tools and resources.

To help you get the word out, we’re attaching a poster you can print and pin to your lunchroom bulletin board or next to your coffeemaker. Or add it to your intranet the week of October 21-27.

We encourage you to share National Save for Retirement Week. Save the date and help your employees learn that their retirement future is happening now.
