It’s easy to think that your boss is only looking out for themselves. Let’s face it, we’re all overworked and underpaid. However, there are probably some super awesome ways your boss is helping you retire that you don’t even know about.
Based off an article in U.S. News, there are 5 Ways (if not more actually) that your boss might be helping you to retire.
Things like matching funds in your 401(k) and funding a portion of your health savings account. All of those items don’t increase your salary, but it is still extra money that is growing for your financial future.
In this podcast, I had the opportunity to interview Jeanne Thompson, VP of Thought Leadership at Fidelity. Jeanne spends her days educating people about retirement planning and is an expert on Financial Wellness. In case you don’t know, Fidelity is a leader in the retirement sector (in fact, you might just have your 401(k) or IRA with Fidelity).
