Prepare to Retire

Retirement Income

A secure, comfortable retirement is every employee's dream. And now because we're living longer, healthier lives, we can expect to spend more time in retirement than our parents and grandparents did. Achieving the dream of a secure, comfortable retirement is much easier when you plan your finances.

The three major elements of your retirement portfolio are benefits from retirement accounts, savings and investments, and Social Security benefits.  A successful savings strategy starts with understanding your financial needs.  Participants transitioning to retirement or those newly retired can learn about planning for what's next, from lifetime income and expenses to lifestyle and how to take care of yourself and the ones you love using the resources below.


Use the benefit calculators and retirement planning resources below to estimate how much of your salary you might be able to replace at retirement and how much more you may need to save to reduce any potential shortfall.
