The U.S. Department of Labor will host a webinar entitled, “Savings Fitness: A Guide to Your Money and Your Financial Future” on April 23, 2014. It runs from 2:00 to 3:15 pm EDT.

This webcast will provide information to help you set short and long-term financial goals, calculate your net worth, estimate how much you need to save for retirement, develop a budget or cash flow spending plan, and organize your debt so you can plan how to pay it down. You will hear about ways to increase your financial fitness including making the most of employer-based retirement savings plans.

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?

Each week we send you a link to a web site that will help answer one of the questions above. Please visit the web sites and share the links with your employees and your friends.
