Staying on Track

Are you saving enough, the right way, to be ready for retirement?

What actions can I take to keep my retirement savings on track? Collapsed Expanded

There are many steps you can take to put yourself on a sound retirement savings footing. Increasing your contributions on a regular basis — say, during open enrollment, on your job anniversary date, the New Year, or your birthday — is a great and often painless way to increase your savings and could make a big difference at retirement time.  

  • If not already enrolled, talk to your benefits administrator about enrolling today!
  • Increase your annual contribution to the maximum amount allowed.
  • Increase contributions to maximize any employer matching contributions.
  • Update your designated beneficiaries.
  • Review your account allocation periodically. Study the menu of investment choices — the more you know about the choices, investing, and your investment goals, the more likely you will choose wisely.

If you take any of these steps periodically, you may enjoy a significant boost to your account value by the time you retire. It doesn't take a lot to start saving. And every dollar may make a difference in the long run.

What is a catch-up contribution? Collapsed Expanded

Catch-up contributions let you save more tax-deferred money for retirement, beyond the normal maximum contribution limit for the year. It’s never too late to start planning and saving for retirement.  Even if you’re over 50, you may be eligible to make an age 50 or over catch-up contribution to help you make up for lost time.

How much do employer contributions help? Collapsed Expanded

Your employer also may be making contributions to your plan! If your employer is matching all or some of your contributions to the retirement savings plan, when you combine this match with the amount of your contribution, plus any tax-deferred earnings your account may accumulate, you have multiple engines of potential growth that can enhance your financial security in retirement.

What happens to my plan account if I leave my job before I retire? Collapsed Expanded

If you’re about to change jobs, you have different options available to you to manage your retirement plan.

Anything you contribute — including rollover contributions and any earnings on that money — is always 100% vested. Your employer’s contributions may be subject to a vesting schedule, check with your employer for the specific vesting schedule for your plan. 

When to take distributions from your employer-sponsored retirement savings plan is up to you, but required minimum distributions (RMDs) must be taken each year beginning with the year you turn age 72. Educate yourself before you make one of the most important financial decisions of your life.
