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 https://mss.kcpsrs.org/wfmlogin.aspx and your social security benefits using my Social Security. https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/
According to the National Public Pension Coalition, https://protectpensions.org/2016/10/17/national-retirement-security-week-2016/ employer-sponsored defined benefit plans (like KCPSRS) and social security are the bedrock of retirement security.
