World Financial Group Discusses Retirement Savings Trends

As Americans review their retirement savings plans, World Financial Group encourages them to evaluate all of the available options.

JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As a new year begins, many Americans pause for a season of reflection and evaluation, reassessing their health, their career goals and even their financial prospects. According to a recent article from U.S. News and World Report, the start of a new year is an ideal time for individuals to review their retirement savings plans, and includes a list of 10 ways in which individuals might improve their retirement savings. World Financial Group (WFG) took note of this article and its retirement resolutions.

WFG and its independent associates throughout North America strive to educate individuals and families on the various retirement savings options available to them. Rather than endorse any one product, World Financial Group informs individuals about the myriad choices that exist, to help empower their clients to make the best decisions about their retirement investments. In response to the U.S. News and World Report, WFG encourages individuals to closely examine their retirement strategies, noting that the beginning of the year is an excellent time to evaluate your current retirement selections and ensure you are getting the most out of your chosen strategy.

One specific suggestion in the U.S. News and World Report article is for individuals to consider boosting the amount of money they save for retirement—even if only by one percent each month. The article notes that even a relatively small increase in retirement savings can add up and make a tremendous impact in the long run.

The article also suggests that individuals review their Social Security statements, which can be attained online by Americans over the age of 18, and use them to inform their retirement savings plans.

Additionally, the article encourages individuals to educate themselves on the various retirement accounts available, which range from Roth accounts to traditional 401(k)s and more. This point dovetails with World Financial Group's commitment to education, and its urging for individuals and families to better understand available retirement planning and saving options.
