A combination of powerful financial and demographic forces has made retirement security a topic of enormous concern in the U.S. in recent years. Unless a broad range of actions is taken, the consequences of this crisis will be far-reaching and play out for decades to come. Published by the International Foundation, this practical, research-based report examines the factors that have led to the crisis and the implications for employers, plan sponsors and workers. The other purpose of this report is to enlighten U.S. employers and plan sponsors regarding the critical role they can plan in helping workers achieve a secure retirement. The report brings together in one source many of the workplace strategies that have been identified as successful in achieving five goals:
- Helping worker determine their retirement needs and where they stand
- Getting workers enrolled and saving for retirement
- Helping workers make prudent investment decisions
- Helping workers stay on track to meet their retirement objectives
- Assisting those near retirement to make the transition.
Near the end of the report is a special section summarizing communication strategies that support a successful retirement security program.
