Make Time for a Retirement Check-Up This Fall

Annual Enrollment is a great time to check on your retirement savings. Good investors periodically review their investments and rebalance their portfolio to keep it aligned with their investment goals. Given current market conditions, now it's even more important that you have a diversified portfolio-one that can help protect you against losses and keeps your savings on track.

A good place to start is your investment vendor's website. It's a good idea to begin your check up by simply reviewing your account information and making sure that all of your personal information (including beneficiaries) is up to date. Then, take a look around at the variety of online tools that can help you choose the right investment mix for meeting your goals in today’s market.
