NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct 22, 2018–Foresters Financial TM is recognizing National Retirement Security Week (NRSW), which is being held October 21 – 27, 2018 and promoted by the National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators, Inc.

The event is part of a national effort to raise public awareness about the importance of saving for retirement and encourages employers to promote the benefits of saving for retirement and encourages their employees to take full advantage of employer-sponsored plans.

“Foresters Financial strongly believes in the importance of retirement planning and we are proud to participate in this national awareness campaign and the related dialogue on financial planning,” said Paul Prete, Vice President for Retirement Programs at Foresters Financial Services, Inc. “According to industry statistics, 36% of American workers don’t contribute to a retirement account. Our goal is to help move the needle on this statistic and to get more people focused on their overall financial well-being which includes having a retirement plan that is catered to their needs” 1. “Each of us should take a moment to reflect on our level of preparedness and then actively take steps to prepare for the future”.
