Foresters Financial Celebrates National Retirement Security Week

  • Oct 15, 2017

Foresters Financial is recognizing National Retirement Security Week (NRSW), which is being held October 15-21, 2017 and promoted by the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators, Inc. (NAGDCA).The event is part of a national effort to raise public awareness about the importance of saving for retirement and asks employers to promote the benefits of saving for retirement and encourages their employees to take full advantage of employer-sponsored plans.

"Foresters Financial strongly believes in the importance of retirement planning and we are proud to participate in this national awareness campaign,” said Paul Prete, Vice President for Retirement Programs at Foresters Financial Services, Inc. “This event is a great opportunity for all of us to reflect on our personal financial situation and consider whether our financial resources will support our needs in retirement.”

“At present,” Prete added, “there is an entire generation of Baby Boomers who face the challenge of making sure they will have adequate income for retirement. As a result, if you’re a retiree or pre-retiree, it is critical that you have a carefully thought out retirement plan in place and this event will hopefully inspire that end result.” 

Based in Lexington, Kentucky, the NAGDCA and its membership urge employers to promote NRSW with special events aimed at getting employees to start saving for retirement and to work together to assure that plan administrators and plan providers present participants with the information and education needed for their retirement.
