America Saves Week is an annual opportunity to reassess your answers to these questions and ask yourself if you are saving in the way your future demands. You’ve worked hard all your life and when you retire, you should reap the benefits of that labor. Establishing good savings behavior now will minimize future worries about your financial status.

By visiting America Saves Week online, you can complete a 12-question assessment to make sure your savings priorities are aligned with your future plans. You can also evaluate how prepared you are and where your savings habits need strengthening to reach your future goals.

The easiest and most effective way to save is automatically.

Social Security is an important part of a sound financial plan. But, it can’t be the only part. To enjoy a comfortable retirement, people need to save and invest throughout their working lives. The new myRA savings account is an excellent place to start. What better time than America Saves Week to get serious about planning for the future. Start saving today for a secure future; open a myRA account. For more information visit

I always encourage workers to view their personalized Social Security Statement frequently for estimates of their future Social Security benefits. It’s easy to do by creating a my Social Security account at This service is free, fast, and secure.

It pay offs.
