Annual Initiative Aligns with Company’s Mission to Promote Retirement Readiness
Ascensus, a technology-enabled service provider that helps more than 7 million Americans save for the future, is proud to join as a participating organization in National Retirement Planning Week® 2018, an annual initiative dedicated to helping consumers focus on their financial needs in retirement.
National Retirement Planning Week—which will be held April 9 through 13—is coordinated by The National Retirement Planning Coalition (NRPC), a group of prominent education, consumer advocacy, and financial services organizations led by the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI). This year, the campaign’s key message is that it is still possible for Americans to retire on their terms despite developing trends that can make planning for and funding retirement more difficult.
Ascensus specializes in qualified retirement plan, IRA, and state-sponsored retirement program recordkeeping and administration. The firm, which was recently recognized as an industry leader in winning the 2018 PLANADVISER Service Star Award, channels its vast experience and expertise to create retirement plan solutions and tools that make it easier for individuals to reach their savings goals. As a National Retirement Planning Week participant, Ascensus will share savings tips throughout the week on social media using the campaign’s official hashtag (#RethinkRetirement).
“We understand that everyday priorities and competing expenses can make saving for the future a challenge,” states David Musto, Ascensus’ president. “At Ascensus, we work hard every day to help over 7 million Americans overcome this challenge. Our recent partnerships with government organizations to create state-sponsored retirement programs is an excellent example of how we remain committed to ensuring more Americans have access to retirement savings vehicles. This National Retirement Planning Week, we celebrate our dedicated associates, our clients who provide their employees with a plan for retirement, our institutional partners, and our network of financial professionals who encourage positive savings behaviors.”
