9th Annual Program on Retirement Issues

Millions of retiring and soon-to-retire Boomers face an uncertain financial future, with smaller investment portfolios and “safe havens” harder to find. Too many young people are borrowing from 401K plans, or liquidating accounts when they change jobs. 

Legislators are under increasing pressure to adjust benefits under Social Security and Medicare. Troubled city and state pension plans are rolling back benefits for future retirees. Private employers are racing to close their defined-benefit retirement plans. Even for long-term investors, the stock market no longer seems like a sure bet. What’s a worker to do?

We will discuss:

  • The Future of Social Security
  • Health Care and Long-Term Care
  • Obstacles to Retirement for People of Color
  • Our Aging Society and its Implications
  • Working in Retirement for Fun and Profit
  • Private Sector Retirement Issues
  • Can we Afford Public Pensions?
  • … and more

The program also will include journalist-only discussions about reporting issues, lots of time for Q&A, and a chance to see a bit of our nation’s capital. Click here to view Power Points, hear podcasts, and access resources from last year’s program.

Underwritten by: Prudential Financial, Inc. and the NPF Programs Fund. Our guidelines for program sponsors are here.
