Nationwide Financial Introduces the “What’s Your Date?” Interactive Retirement Planning Website
Site launched in support of National Save for Retirement Week to help America’s workers prepare for retirement
Columbus, Ohio - Nationwide Retirement Solutions, Nationwide Financial’s public-sector retirement plans business, has launched “What’s Your Date?”, an engaging website created to help employers and their employees plan for retirement. It was developed to support National Save for Retirement Week (Oct. 20-26), an annual event endorsed by Congress designed to raise awareness about the importance of saving for retirement.
The “What’s Your Date?” site allows users to pinpoint their retirement date and then uses a fun, interactive and personalized planning process to educate them on what’s needed to adequately prepare for retirement based on their desired lifestyle. The goal is to simplify the retirement planning process, and increase employee confidence by helping them think through critical retirement planning questions.
“As a U.S.-based company, Nationwide knows the retirement challenges America’s workers face, and how to best help them prepare for and live in retirement,” said Eric Stevenson, senior vice president of Nationwide Retirement Solutions.“This site, along with the educational services Nationwide provides to participants, allows employers to work with their employees to take a proactive role in planning for retirement.”
The new website offers users a look into the future based on their desired lifestyle. The tool offers projections on key consideration factors including:
- Home prices
- The cost of living in popular U.S. retirement destinations
“At Nationwide, we understand every plan and every employee might have different retirement goals, and that’s why we aim to be a strategic partner with each plan to deliver the education, tools and services they need to help their employees build retirement security,” Stevenson said.
