New York, NY, October 21, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Congress has declared October 18-24, 2009 to be National Save for Retirement Week. Statistics have increasingly shown that Americans have inadequate retirement savings. Outside of employer-sponsored plans, most American workers save very little.
Today, fewer people are receiving pensions, and the future of Social Security appears uncertain. That means that the responsibility of providing for retirement income is weighing more heavily on workers’ shoulders.
However, there are many ways for individuals to prepare for their financial futures. First Investors offers a wide array of mutual funds, as well as IRAs and annuities, all of which can aid people with their retirement preparations. In addition, First Investors Financial Services Representatives offer personalized service to each and every client, making home visits and assuring that investors’ portfolios are in line with their needs and goals.
“Saving for retirement is an important issue that deserves national attention,” said Robert M. Flanagan, President of First Investors Corporation, “At First Investors, we wish to help clients of all means prepare for their retirements, and that is why we are proud to promote the message of National Save for Retirement Week.”
First Investors Corporation has been serving the financial needs of its clients since 1930. Through the personalized service of financial services representatives located in a national network of offices, the Company offers a range of products and services, including mutual funds, annuities and life insurance.
