Are you aware that 400,000 county employees from more than 3,100 county agencies are saving for retirement with the NACo Deferred Compensation program? That’s 400,000 citizens who were given the opportunity to take an active role in planning for their future – 400,000 community members who, in the face of numerous and competing financial demands, took that opportunity, and decided to utilize a trusted program to save. In a day and age when individuals and organizations alike are pushed to do more with less, NACo is eager to recognize the monumental contribution from NACo’s county plan sponsors in marketing this cornerstone program successfully and helping that number of participants reach new heights.
Many counties, as employers and plan sponsors of the NACo Deferred Compensation Program, have developed and implemented innovative approaches to help create opportunities for their employees to be retirement ready. NACo, and its Program administrator, Nationwide Retirement Solutions, have created the Aspire Award to recognize two plan sponsors that have gone above and beyond in empowering their employees for retirement success.
Two awards will be presented and consideration will be given to the plan sponsors who present measurable outcomes that result from unique, unusual, original efforts to successfully engage county employees in their retirement futures. The impact of the efforts will be evaluated.
