Encourage Your Employees to Invest Now
A pension isn't meant to make up for an employee's entire salary when they enter retirement. This is a fact that a lot of people don't consider when planning for their lives after they stop working. At Ohio DC, we provide a wide range of informational materials, websites, tools and calculators, social media, etc. to get the word out about how much people will need to make up for after their pensions. Pensions usually cover about 66% of a retiree's working salary and the rest they need to provide themselves. If your goal is to replace 80% of your working salary, you need to account for an additional 14%. Based on our own research and that of other organizations, we know that the sooner employees start saving for retirement, the better off they'll be.
We also see that many people don't start thinking about their retirement savings until they're out of their 20's, sometimes even 30's. We're here to help them catch up. Take a look at our website at Ohio457.org or feel free to contact our staff at Ohio457@nationwide.com to find out how we can help.
