National Save for Retirement Week begins on Sunday (Oct. 21-27), and retirement planning firm MassMutual has teed up awareness and education options to mark it. The activities are designed to highlight the importance of putting aside funds for one’s post-work years and spur active participation in plans.

MassMutual’s educational tools include two online participant webisodes. The first, “Should I Borrow From My 401(k)?,” will launch at 2 p.m. Monday on the company’s RetireSmart YouTube channel. “Supersize Your Savings” will focus on Generation Y plan participants and the importance of beginning to save early; it can be viewed here.

MassMutual’s retirement services will also host a plan sponsor seminar at 2 p.m. on Tuesday called “Participants Talk Retirement” that aims to share information from participant interviews and give sponsors information to help promote retirement benefits as effectively as possible. Those interested should call 866-444-2601.

MassMutual’s executive vice president of retirement services, Elaine Sarsynski, says one of the reasons the company took Retirement Leader of the Year at the 2012 Annual Mutual Fund Industry Awards is its “simplified approach and success in helping participants identify and save toward their goals.”

“All of these events and seminars have just one goal – to help Americans plan and save enough so they can retire with confidence,” Sarsynski says.
