While everyone would benefit from regularly saving for retirement, doing so may be harder for some than others based on a participant’s stage of life. We all face competing financial needs and priorities, and these challenges evolve throughout adulthood. As a defined contribution (DC) plan sponsor, it helps to recognize where participants fall in their life cycle and guide them accordingly.
How can DC plan sponsors assist an audience that can range from a 20-something recent graduate to a 60-something employee who is ready to retire? How do you deliver a message that will resonate with a 20-year-old grandchild, 64-year-old grandparent, and the 42-year old bridging their generations?
These three situations are vastly different. Their individual needs and priorities are diverse. In addition to their distinct financial priorities and ability to save, these individuals consume information rather differently, too.
