Early planning can take you far.
Why save with a 401(k) Plan?
Your employer offers a 401(k) plan as a way to help you save for life beyond your full-time working years. Contributing regularly to a 401(k) can give you the power and confidence to retire with more in your pocket and cover housing, health care, vacations, bills, and other expenses upon retirement.
You're in control
No early withdrawal penalty
Flexible Investment Options
You need more than just a pension
One of the many benefits of working for a public organization is the possibility of qualifying for a pension plan upon retirement. If you’ve paid into a pension system and/or Social Security, you will likely qualify for some type of retirement benefit. While this is extremely valuable, keep in mind you likely wont receive 100% of your pre-retirement income. This is why building additional savings through voluntary retirement plans is important to your financial health.
