Subject: The "My Retirement Paycheck" Tool

Your Retirement Readiness NOW Tip:

The my Retirement paycheck tool,, provided by the National Endowment for Financial Education allows you to explore eight different aspects of your work life to explore your retirement decisions

The National Endowment for Financial Education® (NEFE®) is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan and noncommercial foundation wholly dedicated to improving the financial well-being of all Americans. NEFE® is committed to educating Americans on a broad range of financial topics and empowering them to make positive and sound decisions to reach their financial goals.

Retirement Readiness NOW is not just about saving money and not just something you do just before retiring. Money is very important, but that’s not all. There’s a lot more to planning for your future than putting aside income out of each paycheck for retirement.

What else is there? Happiness, both today and in your future years, is based on your total well-being. So, when planning for your future, you also need to consider your total retirement well-being that encompasses the following:

Networking - What are you doing today that will allow you to be engaged, challenged and fulfilled in retirement?

Overall Health - What are you doing to stay healthy so that you can enjoy your retirement years?

Wealth - How well are you managing your income and investing for your future so that you will be able to support your desired lifestyle in retirement?
