Get Ready to Celebrate – National Employee Benefits Day is on April 2, 2014

Employee Benefits Day was created by the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP) and is a day to recognize benefits professionals and provide an opportunity for better education for employers and employees about benefit topics.

This year, National Employee Benefits Day will be celebrated on April 2, 2014.

We encourage you to use the day to evaluate your employee benefit offerings and to take time to educate your employees on the valuable benefits you offer.

As part of this year’s celebration, IFEBP is focusing on increasing awareness of the retirement crisis and to help plan sponsors motivate participants to actively engage in their financial wellness.

There is a featured National Employee Benefits Day website at which has resources available for both employees who will be retiring in less than 15 years and those who are more than 15 years away from retirement.  These resources will help to make financial wellness more urgent for your employees by providing simple tools to help them start thinking about their future.

Cowan can also help you provide your employees with financial literacy education on a variety of topics related to financial planning, estate planning and retirement planning.

National Employee Benefits Day is also a time to recognize yourself and your peers for all your hard work and dedication. Give yourself a pat on the back for all that you do.
