Saving for Retirement is a SMarT Decision

Ohio Deferred Compensation is a resource for helping to educate your employees about how they can save for retirement and bridge the gap between their pension and what they'll need to live comfortably in retirement. 

One of the best ways we've found for people to save for retirement is to use our SMarT Plan. Using the SMarT Plan, participants can sign up for annual automatic deferral increases to their savings plan. The increase can be set to coincide with annual pay raises, tax season or any other date that's convenient for them. The increase can be adjusted at any time and will help to build on their current savings rate. For more information about the SMarT Plan, take a look here.
