As part of our Culture of Health at the County, financial well-being is recognized as a key element
to overall health and happiness. Luke MacKay, son of Riverside County employee Robert
MacKay, Senior District Attorney Investigator, illustrates this very connection in his winning essay
for the 2015 National Association of Counties/ Nationwide Scholarship. The scholarship is
awarded annually. This year’s topic was, “Why is it important for a public sector employee to start
early when saving for retirement?"
Luke lists helpful considerations for county employees when preparing for retirement: life
expectancy, tax deferral and social security. Click here to read Luke’s complete essay.

Riverside offers employees to help plan for retirement.
