Choose to Save is a website that helps individuals make decisions regarding retirement. It contains several tools, articles and calculators to help you prepare for your future.
Across the top of the website, you will see different tabs that contain brochures, calculators, PSAs, resources, media and savings tips. Down the center of the home page you will find a list of how-to articles and accompanying tools, articles and calculators. For example, under the section title “How to Prepare for Retirement,” another question reads, “Want to know how much you should save for retirement?” The right side of the website features a link to Ballpark Estimate, an interactive worksheet that helps you estimate how much you need to save to live comfortably in retirement. Not only is this tool available online, you can also download it as an app.
By clicking on the “Brochures” tab, you will be brought to several different articles that are available as PDFs. Topics include articles on investment strategies, beginners’ guides to financial security and other educational topics.
The “Resources” tab is packed with useful articles and websites, all listed alphabetically by topic. Choose to Save provides a broad range of topics for different age and wealth demographics, including resources on aging, re-entering the workforce, estate planning and home ownership. Some articles are also available in Spanish.
Overall, this is a great website for comprehensive education about retirement and provides a lot of resources for further analysis. Users can sign up to receive future updates made to the site.
