Retirement Planning Specialists Make the Rounds
One of the benefits that Ohio Deferred Compensation offers that truly makes us stand out are our Retirement Planning Specialists. These Chartered Financial Consultants (ChFCs) have extensive knowledge about the financial and savings industries and can help educate your staff about how and what they're going to need to save to provide themselves with a comfortable retirement. They're about to head out on the road to meet with participants in person and you can find the list of dates and places they'll be visiting here.
Don't Forget What All Ohio DC Offers Participants
Employers are one of the best resources Ohio Deferred Comp has for getting the word out to participants about how we can make saving for their retirement a less stressful process. We have a wide range of tools and resources available to help our participants along their path to retirement income security, but without the help of our employers, it can be hard to get in touch with new hires and employees who haven't already signed up. If you'd like to know learn more about what all we offer take a look at this link.

Encourage Your Employees to Save Now
Getting people to save for retirement is not an easy task. Many people are discouraged by confusing financial jargon and the idea that investing is too complicated for the average person. This isn't the case and one of Ohio DC's goals is to make sure that saving and investing are accessible to all of our participants. Part of how we do that is by providing tools and resources to educate our participants about finance and investing.

If your employees tell you that they're interested in learning more about saving and investing for retirement, give them the link to our website Ohio457.org or tell them to call our Service Center at 877.644.6457 to speak to an Account Executive. If you would like to do more to help your employees save for retirement, give us a call or visit our website to see how Ohio DC can help. It's never too early to start saving for retirement.
