Saving more today can make a huge difference. Share this questionnaire with your employees so they can picture their retirement lifestyle and determine if they should be saving more today to live the future they desire.

Signing the IRS Form 5500 marks the administrative end of a retirement plan year for most plan sponsors. But don’t be tempted by your nearness to the “finish line.” Look carefully before you sign. Inaccuracies on a Form 5500 could trigger a knock on your door from the IRS or the US Department of Labor with a request to review your organization’s 401(k) plan!
How would you rank your 401(k) plan in being the best it can be to meet your organization’s and your employees’ needs? Do you know where to start?
August 13, 2018—We’ve been talking about the way a 401(k) plan can be a great benefit for employers. By building employees’ financial confidence and increasing their ability to retire on time, organizations reduce the workplace distractions that result when employees are financially stressed. They also decrease the future potential for the higher salary and benefits costs that occur when employees work past retirement.
July 5, 2018—Have you started the conversation at your company to determine how to get the biggest organization benefit from your company’s 401(k) plan?
In last month’s Starting the Conversation blog I shared some facts to get company leadership talking. There’s a heavy organization cost when employees can’t retire at normal retirement age and an even greater burden when employees lack the solid financial foundation that allows them to build toward retirement.
June 7, 2018—Previously, I suggested that the ability of employees to retire at a normal retirement age is a benefit of as much significance to the organization for which they work as it is to them individually. Increasingly, employers recognize that it’s in their company’s best interest to do what they can to help their employees establish a firm financial footing and build toward retirement readiness.
