New From WISER

May is Older Americans Month

OAM

WISER is pleased to join the Administration on Aging in observing Older Americans Month. The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities.

Need an idea? WISER's children's book, Sonja Meets Her Future Self, is a great way to share the message of saving with the children in your lives and communities.

WISER Founder Awarded Lifetime Achievement Award


WISER is proud to announce that Cindy Hounsell, president and founder, will be presented with the Plan Sponsor Council of America's lifetime achievement award. The lifetime achievement award recognizes individuals' contributions to the growth of the defined contribution industry.

"Cindy is the perfect fit for our lifetime achievement award," said PSCA's executive director in a press release. "She's a recognized leader positively affecting policy and the changing views in the retirement community."

But only one in four workers potentially eligible to claim it are aware of it.
