Posted by: Bill Olson    June 10, 2014 at 12:20 PM

Indianapolis, Ind., [June 10, 2014] --  70% of Americans are behind schedule in saving for retirement, and half have less than $10,000 in savings, putting them at risk of not having enough resources to pay for basic retirement and health care costs, according to a recent survey*. United Benefit Advisors, the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, in partnership with Principal Life, are hosting the complimentary webinar “Breaking Through the Barriers to Create Retirement Plans that Work for Everyone” on Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 2:00 pm EDT / 11:00 am PDT.

The webinar bases the true measure of retirement plan success on whether employees are saving enough to have adequate income in retirement. Attendees will learn how to evaluate their current plan and set the bar for adequate savings levels.

In this webinar, attendees will learn how simple plan design changes can help plan participants -- and positively impact the organization's bottom line.

Webinar attendees will receive practical tips on how to:

  • Evaluate a plan to determine the income replacement ratio
  • Determine if effective plan design features are in place
  • Implement plan design changes to help employees retire on time
