No Matter Your Age, Gender, or Income-level, #RetirementMatters

Yesterday, America Saves hosted a Twitter chat focusing on the topic of our latest partner packet: retirement.

We were joined by members of the Campaign for a Secure Retirement who addressed issues of retirement planning and savings, and emphasized the importance of saving for retirement no matter what you earn, how old you may be, or your gender. Highlights from the chat include a discussion on the role of Social Security in retirement planning, the new my Social Security account, savings tips for retirement savings inside and outside the workplace, challenges faced specifically by women.

We are so grateful to our partners, friends, and savers for joining us in yesterday’s chat. If you were unable to join us or would like to revisit highlights from the chat, we have embedded the transcript of the #RetirementMatters Twitter chat via Storify:
