Mercer Launches Retirement Planning and Education Campaign

Mercer introduced “My Retirement Workshop,” an online retirement planning and education campaign for employees whose 401(k) plans it administers 

The website provides interactive tools and hands-on instruction to help investors fine-tune their retirement plans.

My Retirement Workshop consists of four main features: a self-assessment tool with personalized feedback and a recommended action plan; a choice of projects that address common retirement planning challenges; a toolbox of helpful calculators, worksheets and widgets; and an opportunity to learn from professionals by watching videos, listening to podcasts and reading articles. Visitors can interact with peers on discussion boards and quick polls, and share the site through various social media websites.

The education effort was launched in early May and will be a year-long campaign, with new content and features introduced in the fall.

Participants can access My Retirement Workshop through their plan’s website. A public version of the site is available at, where mobile device users can access a mobile-optimized variation.
