With National Retirement Security Week right around the corner, financial services corporation ICMA-RC has released an educational campaign in hopes to motivate local and state government employees to increase their savings within employer-sponsored programs.
“The Whole Journey” campaign provides online and mobile educational tools and webinars to public employees. These resources help public sector employees who serve local communities reflect on their personal retirement goals and determine if they are on track to reach them.
National Retirement Security Week takes place from October 16 to 22. The National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA) will be supporting the event as well, with their own campaign titled, “Your Whole Story.” The goal for both events is to incite reflection and commitment within public sector workers determining their retirement track, while also reducing anxiety and stress.
"We are exclusively focused on the public sector and bringing the best possible retirement savings resources to local and state government employees," says Bob Schultze, president and CEO of ICMA-RC. "National Retirement Security Week encourages everyone to focus on the importance of building retirement security and preparing for a more comfortable and rewarding experience after leaving the workforce.”
