Fellow NAPFA member, Jim Blankenship, has inspired several other fellow NAPFA members and bloggers to challenge their readers to save an extra 1% per year toward their retirement beginning this year by increasing their deferrals to their 401(k) accounts starting January 1. I’m passing along this challenge, along with links to several other articles that have been written on the subject, challenging you to increase your savings by another 1% in the coming year. Accept the Challenge!! Start increasing your savings for your own retirement today!
