It’s closer than you think.

Please join us as for National Save for Retirement Week, October 20-26, 2013.

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.

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 the DRS website beginning October 21 under What’s New. Along with a short, instructive interactive game that changes on 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 during the work week of
October 21-25.

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.
