How 401(k) Plan Sponsors Can Encourage Their Employees to Defer $$$$$


For some reason when I was growing up, my mother decided to make the living room a no man’s land (only for parties and special occasions) because it needed to be the perfect room. I never understood that because things that serve a purpose are meant to be used. The same can be said about 401(k) plans. They are adopted by employers to encourage retirement savings by their employees by providing this wonderful employee benefit.

This article is why you should encourage your employees to save for retirement and the ways you can encourage them to do so which benefits them and more importantly, benefits you as an employer/plan sponsor.
