Learn This Simple Rule for Saving and Spending


It’s human nature to put off annual checkups — ones for your physical health and ones for your financial well-being. Savers who participate in plans like the Retirement Savings Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) (RSP) rarely change the amount they’re saving or their investment choices after they enroll for the first time.

Annual savings checkups are important because life changes. Frequently. So, Fidelity Investments, our RSP record keeper, has launched a site for participants to help them to check up on a variety of retirement savings approaches that may need tweaking as life throws those changes at us. Read A Simple Rule for Saving & Spending on Fidelity’s Let’s get down to basics site. Or, find a specific topic below that interests you:

  • Do you know how your RSP savings are invested? The market changes over time, so it’s important that your savings are invested appropriately. View “Let’s talk investing” to find out what kind of investor you are and how you’ll be most comfortable investing your RSP savings to meet your long-term goals.
