Automatic Deferral Increases – Most experts agree that participants should be saving about 15% (including any employer contributions) of their gross salary for retirement.

But there is a way to ease into a higher deferral rate. Automatic Deferral Increases are a budget friendly solution to help you reach your retirement savings rate goal by gradually raising your rate each year by the percentage you elect.
