While no two people’s stories are the same, there is one thing many of us share: having a vision for the future. To help you prepare for the future you want, the Office of Employee Health and Benefits is inviting you to attend a lunchtime meeting about MaineSaves, the State’s voluntary retirement savings plan.

MaineSaves is like a 401(k) plan, but for government employees. With this plan, you can build savings to supplement the benefits you’ll receive from Maine’s pension plan. In just a few minutes, you can make some decisions that could really impact your life for the better. Future You will thank you.

Choose a live meeting near you or participate in an online seminar (webinar) from any location. Both are available with each of the plan’s three providers: MassMutual, VALIC and Voya.

 

What the Meetings Cover

• Learn how MaineSaves works and the advantages of participating
• Review what to consider when enrolling
• Get answers to common questions about the plan, and
• Enroll in MaineSaves in 10 minutes.

* Please note, in Augusta, the 4th floor of the Cross Building is a fragrance-free area due to the significant chemical sensitivities of some employees. While attending the session, presenters and attendees should refrain from wearing anything with fragrance such as perfume, cologne, after-shave, scented body lotion, and hand cream. We also ask you to avoid eating strong-smelling foods like fresh-popped popcorn or heated fish.
