More than 88 million employees are responsible for managing their own retirement assets. However, it’s estimated that these same employees lose $100 billion every year due to investment mistakes! (1)
Investing right is hard. And it takes time to research, analyze and re-allocate. With so much money at stake (trillions), the demand for help is huge.
Couple this with all the other issues employees need to address for retirement and the need for educational workplace seminars becomes obvious. Employees have a job to do and lives to live…they don’t have a lot of time or interest to figure this stuff out. Women especially have some unique challenges that employers can help them address through workplace workshops.
Her Retirement is a proven framework for building and implementing a person’s retirement based on our research-backed philosophies and strategies.
Our mission is simple…to empower your female employees (and their spouses/partners and family), and help them prepare for retirement while transitioning into retirement with clarity, confidence and comfort.

“I told my investment advisor I was planning to retire in two years and all he said was, ‘Good.’
I attended a Her Retirement workshop at my office, had an assessment of my 401(k) plan and spent another 8 hours with a retirement specialist outlining my entire retirement plan. Now I have the knowledge and confidence to retire in 5 years. This is a heck of a lot better than ‘good’!” — Nancy

ANALYSIS & ASSESSMENTS...to help your employees get more
Everyone who participates in our on-site or on-demand workshops is offered a complimentary 1-on-1 assessment.
Many employees are really confused when it comes to figuring out “how much” and “how to”. In this 2nd step of our approach, we use data-driven analysis to discover if employees have enough of the “right stuff” in their retirement plan.
IS MY 401(k) OKAY?
The personalized 401(k) assessment provides a comprehensive review and answers the following questions for an employee:
- Are you putting enough away?
- Do you have the right investments?
- Do you have proper allocations?
- What re-allocations do we recommend?
- What is the best withdrawal strategy to minimize tax effect?
“There is no success without action.”
Step 3 - STRATEGY...to help your employees keep more
After the complimentary assessment with a retirement planner in our network, employees can choose to continue the process. Additional analyses (including income/Social Security optimization, portfolio and tax analysis) are completed. Based on this information, your retirement planner will build a customized plan for you. The number one goal of this 3rd step is for employees to learn and understand the strategies for turning their retirement savings into a retirement paycheck.
“If you know you’re on the right track, if you have this inner knowledge, then nobody can derail your plans.”
GUIDANCE...to help your employees have more
Finally, knowledge, analysis and strategy is turned into action with your retirement planner overseeing implementation and ongoing reviews. For a low monthly fee, the retirement planners in our network can oversee your 401(k) plan: analysis, investment allocation and a bi-annual reviews, as well as the other components of an overall retirement plan.
All of our the retirement planners recommended in our network are carefully vetted.

They are committed to putting your employee’s best interests above all else. They are also independent and product agnostic, which means we can offer the best solutions for each person’s goals.
