Each year, the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA), with support from a resolution by the U.S. Senate, promotes National Retirement Security Week (NRSW). Ohio Deferred Compensation and NAGDCA's goal during NRSW (October 21-27) is to promote the idea of saving money for retirement. To illustrate the basics, NAGDCA put together a quick video here. Send your staff to this link to see some of the materials NAGDCA created for them.

Help Employees Get Prepared for Retirement
Conservatively speaking, 65% of Americans save only a little or nothing for retirement (Bankrate's Financial Security Index Feb. 28-March 4, 2018) and 46% of Americans don't believe they will be financially comfortable when they retire (GALLUP, 2016-2018). Another 40% of workers say their employers do not provide any type of retirement or financial education (Dave Ramsey Retirement Education Study August 2016) but employees would like more education and advice from their employers on how to reach their retirement goals.
Ohio DC can help if your employees have retirement savings questions or concerns. If you would like to find out more about the tools and resources available to help you and your staff save for retirement, call our Service Center at 877-644-6457, visit our website at Ohio457.org or feel free to email our staff at Ohio457@nationwide.com with any specific questions.
