2019 Retirement Confidence Survey from EBRI
The Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) has released its 2019 Retirement Confidence Survey. Once again this year, they found that respondents are experiencing increased confidence in the likelihood that their retirement will be comfortable. They still have concerns about issues like taxes, social security and health care costs, but more than two-thirds of American workers are feeling confident. Check out more insights here .

Encourage Your Employees to Save Now
There is no easy answer to the question, how much should someone save for retirement, but the best general answer is "as much as you can,” as soon as possible.

One way to encourage your employees to save is to point them to our calculators  on our website to help them estimate their income requirements at retirement. Completing the process takes less than 10 minutes. If you need assistance, please  contact us .

Your employees should also begin investing as early as they can to give their investments as much time as possible to grow.

To get them started, you can send your employees to Ohio457.org or tell them to call our Service Center at 877.644.6457 to speak to a Retirement Planning Specialist or 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. Let us help prepare your employees to retire.
