ICMA-RC Publishes America Saves Web Resource

A new online resource provided by ICMA-RC seeks to help savers working for public employers evaluate and realize their long-term financial goals. 

ICMA-RC is recognizing America Saves Week, which will take place February 27 to March 4, 2017, by publishing an educational website for novice investors working for public-sector employers. 

The website (www.icmarc.org/AmericaSaves) seeks to “help public sector employees reflect on their 2017 savings and retirement goals, and learn useful tips on spending responsibly.” The site contains educational resources, including a video about savings strategies, an infographic about responsible spending, and an easy-to-use savings calculator. Additional resources include ICMA-RC’s interactive “Your Future Animated” feature and the America Saves #ImSavingFor photo contest.

“The first few months of the year is the perfect time to evaluate one’s savings and use this opportunity to review where you are and make changes as appropriate,” suggests Alex Hannah, managing vice president, marketing and communications. “The resources we have created for America Saves Week tie in to our focus on helping public sector employees make sound financial decisions about their future.”
