By Drew Kessler The NFCC is proud to announce that it will be supporting National Retirement Planning Week® 2015 – a national effort to encourage Americans to plan for their financial needs in retirement. National Retirement Planning Week® 2015 will take place from April 13 to 17. The week is organized by the National Retirement Planning Coalition – a group of prominent education, consumer advocacy, and financial services organizations, which recognize that the need to help Americans plan for retirement is an ongoing effort. The coalition, spearheaded by the Insured Retirement Institute, is committed to educating Americans about the importance of retirement planning and is determined to make this a national priority. National Retirement Planning Week® and other coalition activities will demonstrate that – despite developing trends that have made planning for and funding retirement more difficult – it is still possible to “Retire On Your Terms” if comprehensive retirement plans are properly developed and managed. To support these educational and awareness efforts, the coalition maintains www.RetireOnYourTerms.org, which features resources and tools to help Americans focus on their long-term financial goals. Throughout National Retirement Planning Week®, educational materials will be made available in conjunction with the week’s agenda, and the coalition will encourage retirement planning through nationally distributed print, television and radio materials, a coordinated media outreach program, and events throughout the week.
