ICMA-RC’s Launches New RealizeRetirement® Virtual Education Program


ICMA-RC is excited to announce the launch of their new RealizeRetirement Virtual Education Program, beginning this month.

ICMA-RC has always educated participants about how important it is for them to save for their future. Building on ICMA-RC’s learnings in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and their successes in pivoting to deliver education virtually, they want to reinforce their commitment to helping participants wherever they are as they serve their communities.

One way is through monthly, theme-based education modules designed to help participants understand the many aspects of their financial health at all stages of their careers as well as impacts on their households.

Through this virtual program, ICMA-RC Retirement Plans Specialist (RPS) will be conducting outreach to targeted groups of participants as well as broad-based efforts in conjunction with their CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals. Outreach will consist of email messaging, interactive webinars, and other engagement-focused communications.

For the remainder of 2020, your Retirement Plan Specialist will plan to deliver the following:

It Pays to Start Early (August) – Focuses on encouraging participants to enroll in your plan and begin saving early. Highlights include the time value of money, how to make small changes that have a big impact, and debt management.

Investing in a Pandemic (September) – Addresses the current worldwide pandemic, associated market volatility, and questions many participants have, such as whether they are making the right financial moves. Highlights available resources, concepts such as dollar-cost averaging, and action plans for achieving long-term goals.

Control What You Can (October) – Takes participants on a step-by-step process for understanding their individual situation and making educated decisions about their retirement savings, particularly given today’s ever-changing world and feelings of being overwhelmed.

I’m Approaching Retirement, Now What? (November) – Explores the paths near-retirees can take, and how they can prepare for and manage their finances in retirement, including discussions on withdrawals, taxation, and income options.
