It’s America Saves Week! Each year we take this week to do a financial check-in with our members and focus on the importance of saving.
Today’s focus is “Save to Retire."
Preparing for retirement can easily be pushed into the “someday” category, as we focus on present needs and expenses. In fact, very few Americans have a plan for retirement savings that is adequate for their desired standard of living after they retire. Today our focus is to encourage Americans to save today for tomorrow and discover just how much they need to save for their golden years.
No matter your age, saving for retirement requires having a plan outside of only contributing to your employer’s 401K plan.
We encourage you to talk to Ryan Batey, our financial advisor with Strategic Investment Services.
We also encourage you to create an account on www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount to see what your current estimated monthly benefits will be at the age you retire.
If saving for retirement is your current savings goal, be sure to take the America Saves Pledge and receive tips, reminders, and other resources to support you on your savings journey.
Today we encourage you to take the America Saves Pledge. Once you do, you’ll not only receive support, reminders, and tips from America Saves; you’ll be entered to win up to $750 in the #ImSavingFor Sweepstakes! (See official rules: http://bit.ly/387q4kt)
