WASHINGTON, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of their continued support of National Retirement Security Week (NRSW), ICMA-RC is offering several educational resources to encourage local and state government employees to start saving or increase contributions to their employer-sponsored retirement plan. This year's campaign theme, "Your Whole Story," helps participants to think about their unique story — from the time they receive their first pay check, until the time they retire.
The annual NRSW initiative, which will take place October 15-21, 2017, is a national effort championed by the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA) to raise public awareness about the importance of saving for retirement.
"National Retirement Security Week is a great opportunity for public sector employees to take time to focus on their retirement savings and confirm they are taking steps towards building their retirement security," said Bob Schultze, President and CEO of ICMA-RC. "National Retirement Security Week encourages everyone to focus on the importance of a more comfortable and rewarding experience after leaving the workforce."
The "Your Whole Story" campaign provides online and mobile educational tools for public sector employees. These resources help employees who serve local communities reflect on their personal retirement goals and determine if they are on track to reach them.
