Educating employees about retirement can be an ongoing process. Effective education meets the needs of employees as they go through various stages of retirement readiness – from just starting out to retirement and beyond.
As the employer and plan sponsor you can play an important role by providing the opportunity for employees to save for their retirement by making them aware of the education materials and tools that are available.

1. Target-date funds typically invest in other investments and are designed for investors who are planning to retire during the target date year. The fund's target date is the approximate date of when investors expect to begin withdrawing their money. A Target date fund's investment objective/strategy typically becomes more conservative over time primarily by reducing its allocation to equity investments and increasing its allocations in fixed-income investments. An investor's principal value in a target-date fund is not guaranteed at any time, including at the fund's target date.
