Making Saving for Retirement Easier
We recently passed a milestone at Ohio DC, by having more than 50% of our participants investing in our LifePath Portfolios. If you aren't familiar with our LifePath Portfolios, they provide our participants a straightforward, complete asset-allocation strategy. Each Portfolio is designed to be a single investment choice for their Ohio DC account. This makes them a relatively easy and very popular investment option.

There are many reasons for the popularity of LifePath Portfolios, including the option to choose a target date near the year participants plan to begin making withdrawals. Participants are also free to choose a target date that matches their desired asset allocation or level of risk. LifePath Portfolios automatically rebalance and are designed to become more conservative as participants approach the selected target date. Learn more about LifePath Portfolios .

Ohio DC can help you address LifePath Portfolios and other topics with your employees. If you'd like to learn more about what we can do, visit Ohio457.org, call your local Account Executive or our Service Center at 877.644.6457 to schedule an appointment.
