to reflect on your financial goals for your future retirement.

National Retirement Security Week was established in 2006 to raise public awareness about the importance of saving and to encourage employees to participate in their employer-sponsored retirement plans. This year, National Retirement Security Week runs from October 21–27, 2018, and is the perfect opportunity to reflect on your financial goals for your future retirement.

Are you saving enough for retirement?

If not, don’t worry. It’s never too late to start saving for retirement. If you haven’t opened a 403(b) Smart Account with the Fund, you can start building your savings by filling out the 403(b) Smart Account form and submitting it to your human resources or payroll department.

If you’re currently saving with the Fund but haven’t quite reached your goal, consider making additional contributions to your 403(b) Smart Account. If you log in to your account, you can use the Fund’s Retirement Goal Calculator to determine how much you will need to save to reach your retirement savings goal.
