let's look at the numbers. last year -- a little more than half of the employers in the report automatically enrolled workers into a retirement savings plan -- like a 401 (k). 30 percent automatically contributed 6 percent or more of the workers salary to the savings plan. which -- according to the report -- is a big deal. here's why. if automatically enrolled -- 88 percent of workers participate in the plan. when employees have to sign themselves up and aren't than half participate. but putting away 6 percent still might not be enough. t-rowe price recommends saving 15 percent or more of your salary towards retirement. if you can't do that all at once -- start saving gradually. like adding two percent each year. little by little -- you can get a nest egg -- that may keep you comfortable. and for more help with managing your financial future ... make an appointment with our debt
appointments are free ... but they can save you more than you ever imagined. i'm michelle mortensen./// sherry, how's the weather today? clear skies and here comes that sun just with temps in the 60s and upper 50s this morning... it's on the cool side. .............. a nice day ahead with good sunshine and light winds. .............. tomorrow the winds pick up as a system rolls into the great basin with wind, rain and snow. .......... no rain for the desert - just dry gusty winds and increased
