The sixth annual "Save for Retirement Week," original designated by Congress through a bi-partisan (not sure what that means? join the club) resolution. ING Financial and Great-West Retirement Services promoted the week recently and the week was mentioned at AICPA's fall council meeting. The week fits well with the AICPA's "Feed the Pig" initiative as well.
Admittedly, in these parts, the third week in October is best known as the week of the Alabama--Tennessee football game (likely a no contest this year). Nevertheless, "Save for Retirement Week" is a worthy event and hopefully numerous people will be encouraged to talk advantage of retirement plans at their employers'.
