Preparing for retirement can easily be pushed into the “someday” category, as we focus on present needs and expenses. Do something today that your future self will thank you for!

This week’s theme is #SavingForRetirement. Most Americans -- military service members included -- have an inadequate retirement savings plan for their desired standard of living in their golden years.

With the changes to the military's pension plan and the introduction of the Blended Retirement System, it’s possible that many service members may be leaving “free money” (in the form of a government match to their TSP account), on the table. It’s also possible that military spouses don’t have their own retirement savings, especially if they aren’t currently working.

This week, we’ll focus on encouraging the entire military community, including spouses and veterans, to save today for tomorrow and discover just how much they need to save for their golden years.
