SAVING FOR RETIREMENT: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 401(K), TRADITIONAL IRA AND ROTH IRA PLANS

Alliance for Investor Education's Highlights 10 Useful Resources for Investors

WASHINGTON, D.C.//September 29, 2015//At a time when nearly one of three U.S. households have $0 saved for retirement, the nonprofit Alliance for Investor Education (AIE) is making available "Saving For Retirement: What You Need To Know About 401(k), Traditional IRA and Roth IRA Plans" at http://www.investoreducation.org/savingforretirement. AIE is a consortium of 18 leading U.S. financial-related foundations, nonprofit organizations, associations and governmental agencies.

Many employers offer some sort of retirement savings plan, such as a 401(k), 403(b) or IRA. Employees who take full advantage of these tax-advantaged ways to save can build significant retirement assets. As Americans continue to live longer, it is more important than ever for households to secure a retirement nest egg and to be educated about how they can save for retirement. A retirement savings plan is often the most convenient and potent way to save for the future.

AIE President Don Blandin, who also serves as president of the Investor Protection Trust, said: "Investors should always be aware of the best retirement savings options available to them. It's important for younger investors to educate themselves about their employer's retirement plan options, whether their employer offers matching retirement contributions and whether their level of retirement contributions is enough to ensure a healthy retirement. Far too often I hear from investors who didn't know that their company offers to match their retirement contribution. That's just leaving money on the table that you could have for your own. It's never too late for investors to take advantage of a retirement savings account and hopefully these resources offered by AIE will help educate investors about their options."

The new "Saving For Retirement: What You Need To Know About 401(K), Traditional IRA and Roth IRA Plans" section of the AIE Web site features the following 10 top resources for consumers:
