For plan sponsors
National Retirement Security Month (NRSM) is an opportunity to bring awareness to your
employees about the importance of saving today for a more secure financial future.
Traditional pension plan and Social Security benefits have long been the backbone of most workers’ income in
retirement. However, many financial experts agree that pensions and Social Security may not provide enough
post-retirement income. Longer life spans and rising costs, especially for health care, have changed the
retirement outlook for many workers. NRSM provides an opportunity for plan sponsors to share resources with
participants about their retirement options.
Launch an NRSM initiative in your workplace with the help of our NRSM planning materials. Download flyers and
html emails to help you build a successful National Retirement Security Week campaign in your workplace.

About National Retirement Security Month
Held every October, National Retirement Security Month is a national effort to raise
public awareness about the importance of saving for retirement. The month provides an opportunity for employees
to reflect on their personal retirement goals and determine if they’re on target to reach those goals.
In 2006, National Retirement Security Week was formed when Senators Gordon Smith (R-OR) and Kent Conrad (D-ND)
introduced the first resolution establishing National Save for Retirement Week. Their goals were to elevate
public knowledge about retirement savings and encourage employees to save and participate in their
employer-sponsored retirement plans.

In 2020, the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators
(NAGDCA) updated its legislative priority to advocate for National Retirement Security Month — expanding the
event from one week.
Over the years, MissionSquare Retirement has partnered with NAGDCA to make the event a success. MissionSquare
Retirement and NAGDCA remain committed to educating employers and employees about the growing importance of
saving for retirement.
Today, plan sponsors and plan participants around the U.S. take part in this exciting month. We invite you to
participate and take advantage of the educational resources on our site.
