America Saves Week* is a national celebration to encourage employees to save money and plan for the future. Join this year’s celebration February 27 through March 4 by boosting your savings — in the Retirement Savings Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (RSP) or your personal savings account — by 1 percent.
For an example of how a small increase in the amount you contribute today can make a powerful difference during retirement, use this calculator sponsored by Fidelity Investments, record keeper for the RSP.
Improve Your Financial Well-Being
In addition to celebrating America Saves Week, there will be many opportunities at the Board this year to improve your financial well-being, including e-learning and Call to Health challenges.
And, with a brand-new socially responsible investment option, added features, and lower fees, it is worth thinking (or rethinking) about how the RSP can work for you. Read New Year, Great Plan for Retirement Savings or visit pensions.org. RSP participants have access to these additional resources:

If your employer offers the RSP and you don’t currently participate, ask how to get started. If you already save in the RSP, consider saving 1 percent more.

*America Saves Week is coordinated by America Saves and the American Savings Education Council. Started in 2007, the week is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status.
