National Retirement Security Week Starts Today.
Retirement may be later, but the time to save for it is now. This week, formerly known as National Save for Retirement Week, is an important reminder to assess your savings progress. Are you where you should be?
To make sure your financial plan is keeping pace with your life plan, use this checklist to perform your own retirement financial annual checkup. It includes a list of “to-dos” to help you think about:
ü Your retirement goals
ü The contributions you’re making
ü Your investments and how they’re performing
Remember: Help is available to evaluate your savings and keep your plan on track. You can schedule an advice session with a TIAA-CREF Financial Consultant or use the Retirement Advisor online tool.
Take time this week to complete the checklist. Whether you’re just starting to save, trying to catch up or getting ready to retire, you’ll feel better about checking off these to-dos, knowing you’re taking action to pursue your future financial well-being.
