Financial security later in life

Written by Dan Fair on September 12, 2013 - 3:02pm
As more and more baby boomers retire, the financial security of older Americans is becoming of greater importance to our society.

Combined with an increasing average lifespan, a financial security crisis for older Americans could be on the horizon. 

At Woodstock Institute’s 40th anniversary research symposium on October 2-3, Dr. Fernando Torres-Gil, professor and director at UCLA’s Center for Policy Research on Aging, will address the challenges of an aging and increasingly diverse United States, and a new paradigm to ensure the financial success of that population.

A panel session will address the issue of retirement security on a more local level. Our own research shows that more than half of Illinois’ private sector workers lack access to an employment-based retirement savings plan, preventing many workers from adequately preparing for retirement.  Panelists from Woodstock Institute, the Society of Actuaries, and the Illinois State Senate will discuss the policy implications of inadequate retirement savings and strategies for addressing them.

Don’t miss the chance to hear about these important issues from top experts. Register for the event today.
