YOUR WEALTH
Editor’s Note
As a financial nerd, I have to admit that I get excited when open enrollment season rolls around. To be clear, open enrollment isn’t just a time to make health-care and beneficiary decisions. It’s also the time to take advantage of opportunities to save more for retirement.

Seriously, take stock of your retirement savings plans during your work open enrollment. Use the time to your advantage and determine whether you can contribute more to your retirement savings; re-balance your 401(k) plan; make sure you are maxing out your employer’s match (free money, people); and see if your employer is making other options available, including a Roth 401(k) plan. It’s your money, so why not take the time?
