PBGC Blog: Retirement Matters

Here at PBGC, it's our hope that you're using every week to plan for your retirement. But if not, this week, April 13 - 17, is a good time to start. That's because this week is National Retirement Planning Week (NRPW)!

Recognized in April, during financial literacy month, NRPW represents a national effort to help consumers focus on their financial needs during retirement. This effort is led by the National Retirement Planning Coalition - a group of prominent education, consumer advocacy and financial services organizations charged with educating Americans on the importance of retirement planning.

For 40 years, PBGC has protected the retirement incomes of more than 40 million Americans workers in more than 26,000 private-sector defined benefit pension plans. We work hard to ensure those counting on a monthly benefit receive timely and uninterrupted payments.

The National Retirement Planning Coalition has provided a number of resources to demonstrate that it is possible to "Retire on Your Terms," with proper retirement planning. Visit the National Retirement Planning Coalition's webpage for more information.

And be sure to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for daily updates during NRPW.
