Ascensus Joins National Retirement Planning Week 2017

Annual Initiative Aligns with Company's Mission to Promote Retirement Readiness

DRESHER, Pa. - April 3, 2017 - Rezul -- Ascensus, the nation's largest independent retirement plan and college savings services provider, is proud to join in National Retirement Planning Week 2017, an annual weeklong initiative dedicated to raising public awareness of the need for comprehensive retirement planning.

The National Retirement Planning Coalition—comprised of prominent education, consumer advocacy, and financial services organizations—says that rethinking your retirement by developing a holistic financial plan can restore confidence and build savings for post-working years. To help spread its message, the Coalition has organized National Retirement Planning Week®, a national effort to help consumers "Rethink Retirement"—the theme of this year's week.

Ascensus specializes in qualified retirement plan and IRA recordkeeping and administration and was recently recognized as an industry leader, winning the 2016 PLANADVISER Adviser Choice Award. The firm channels its vast experience and expertise to create retirement plan solutions and tools that make it easier for individuals to reach their savings goals. As a National Retirement Planning Week participant, Ascensus will share savings tips throughout the week on social media using the campaign's official hashtag (#RethinkRetirement).
"We understand that everyday priorities and competing expenses can make saving for the future a challenge," states Bob Guillocheau, Ascensus' president and chief executive officer. "At Ascensus, we work hard every day to help over 7 million Americans overcome this challenge. This National Retirement Planning Week, we celebrate our dedicated associates, our clients who provide their employees with a plan for retirement, our financial institution partners, and our network of financial professionals who encourage positive savings behaviors."
