MADISON, Wis. (10/1/14)--The Credit Union National Association has enhanced the calculator on its retirement microsite Plan It.
Plan It serves as a retirement preparation resource for credit union members of any age who want to ensure a comfortable future.
With increased connectivity among the three retirement calculators and supplementary items added to the Retire Ready checklist and short courses, credit unions can now offer their members additional expert retirement advice. The newly revamped Plan It also includes revised language for comprehension and consistency throughout the three calculators.
"Our goal has always been to help pre-retirees focus attention on and keep track of their retirement funds," said Rena Crispin, Plan It managing editor.
Plan It's updated features allow members to see the benefits of planning for retirement with planning tools, including:
"Plan It's calculators provide a clear picture to members who want reliable results," said Susan Tiffany, CUNA director of personal finance information for adults. "Ideally, foreseeing the future in this painless way will encourage them to take steps to make sure their retirement is all they hope it will be."
