TwoandahalfNational Save for Retirement Week
Taking place October 18-24, National Save for Retirement Week is a national effort to raise public awareness about the importance of saving for retirement. The week provides an opportunity for all generations to assess their financial health and their strategies for building retirement security.

IMRF encourages everyone to rethink their savings strategies and plan accordingly during National Save for Retirement Week. "Saving for retirement must be a life-long process - regardless of age, health or work status," said IMRF Executive Director Louis W. Kosiba. "Today's employees cannot afford to put off thinking about retirement. Regardless of current savings or market fluctuations, all individuals can take steps to be better prepared for a secure retirement - whether in 20, 30 or 40 years."
Correlating with National Save for Retirement Week, IMRF has identified six tips to help all individuals prepare for retirement. All IMRF members and employers are invited to fully participate in the various activities and take advantage of the educational resources offered in honor of the week. Visit the National Save for Retirement website to learn more about the program.
