National Retirement Security Week


National Retirement Security Week

This is the 10th anniversary of Save for Retirement Week, established as part of the Pension Protection Act of 2006. It is a perfect time to pause and reflect on your retirement plan. Think of the week as a reminder, similar to a grocery list.

Consider what you have in your retirement “pantry” — your KCPSRS defined benefit, your estimated social security, any personal savings (457plan, IRA, 401k). You can estimate your KCPSRS retirement using My Account  and your social security benefits using my Social Security.

According to the National Public Pension Coalition,  employer-sponsored defined benefit plans (like KCPSRS) and social security are the bedrock of retirement security.
