Essential Tools To Help With Saving

Educational ToolsIn the last issue of the Quarterly News, we asked readers how they learn about saving for the future. About 37 percent said they learn the most from reading articles on their own, 37 percent preferred to meet with a knowledgeable expert, and the remaining 25 percent were split evenly between watching videos/webinars and using online tools and calculators. ICMA-RC offers resources in all of these categories.

The Retirement Education Center (www.icmarc.org/education) is filled with educational materials and tools to help you learn about investing and saving for retirement, making a plan for the future, and keeping track of your progress. The Small Change, Big Savings and the Savings Boost calculators are particularly helpful when you’re starting out, showing the long-term impact of increasing your contributions even by a small amount. The Grow Your Savings calculator illustrates how your savings can grow over time. The site also includes videos, webinars and factsheets to help with a variety of financial topics such as dealing with debt, saving for college, and understanding the stock market.

ICMA-RC also offers personalized assistance from our Retirement Plans Specialists (RPS), who can answer questions about your retirement savings account, discuss your investing options, and help you make a savings plan. You can contact your RPS by using one of the "contact us" options in Account Access or on our website: www.icmarc.org.
