DES MOINES, Iowa –State Treasurer Michael L.

Visit www.icmarc.org/retirement-week.html to sign up for a webinar or access free retirement planning tools.
National Save for Retirement Week began in 2006 as an effort to increase public knowledge about the importance of saving for retirement and the benefits of employer-based savings and pension plans. Three separate webinars are offered throughout the week, and a National Pack-A-Sack Lunch Day is schedule for Wednesday, October 21. “There are many small ways to make a big impact on your retirement savings account,” Fitzgerald added. “Even one less visit to the vending machine or cafeteria each week can really add up.”
