May 14, 2012 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - Mercer launched “My Retirement Workshop,” an online retirement planning and education campaign for employees whose 401(k) plans it administers.
The website provides interactive tools and hands-on instruction to help investors “fix up” their retirement plans.
My Retirement Workshop consists of four main features: a brief self-assessment tool that provides personalized feedback and a recommended action plan; a selection of hands-on projects that address common retirement planning challenges; a toolbox of helpful calculators, worksheets and widgets; and an opportunity to “learn from the pros” by watching videos, listening to podcasts and/or reading articles. Visitors to the site can also interact with peers through discussion boards and quick polls and share the site through various social media websites.
The My Retirement Workshop online education campaign was launched in early May and will be a year-long campaign, with new content and features to be introduced in the fall.
Participants can access My Retirement Workshop through their plan’s website. A public version of the site is also available at www.myretirementworkshop.com, where mobile device users also can access a mobile-optimized variation of the site for easy viewing.
