Fiscal pressures threaten the tax incentives of the 401(k) system.

Tax incentives. Retirement planning. Retirement income. Three terms that are intricately connected.

As consumers we understand the importance of maintaining the delicate balance between these three. During times of economic uncertainty, it is all the more important to preserve this balance for the well-being of the nation as a whole. Yielding to the doomsday scenario of the fiscal cliff and making changes has a long-term detrimental impact on everyone – employees, employers, and gradually all the spokes of the economic wheel.

These are the conclusions that we draw from the press release and survey published by the American Benefits Council / Institute.

Independently, ASPPA has launched a grassroots campaign to save the 401(k). Learn more and tell Congress to leave your 401(k) alone.

Now is the time to act. Will you?
