News You Can Use: Happy National Employee Benefits Day

I love any excuse for a party, but this is a genuinely good reason: The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans is leading today's celebrations for National Employee Benefits Day.

Although the day is not as widely celebrated as New Year's Eve or Mardi Gras, amid the current recession, it's more important than ever to cheer the successes of employers and employees alike in maintaining and wisely taking advantage of benefits plans. Further, the day is an important one to focus on education and awareness about benefits.

This year, IFEBP is encouraging benefits pros to use the day as an opportunity to educate themselves and their participants on the importance of retirement security. Visit the Benefits Day site ( for free videos and other resources for marking the day.

How are you spending NEBD? Comment and let me know.
