The population is aging, individuals are living longer, and many employers have moved away from traditional retirement plans. In the U.S., periods of retirement have increased a great deal even though some people are continuing to work longer. Many people say they want to work as part of retirement and some do, but there are few formal phased retirement programs. Society of Actuaries research offers information about how and when people are leaving the labor force. Many are leaving earlier than expected, and there are big questions about what retirement will look like in future decades. Employers are increasingly seeking out older workers in a tight labor market, and immigration policy changes could produce significant changes.
During this webinar, case studies will offer practical experience and recent developments. The practical experience will provide insights about what factors will lead to individual success as an older worker, and what factors are barriers. This will also provide insights about what types of jobs are most available and about the acceptance of older workers in practice. Findings will be shared from a July 2017 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report which offers a broad up-to-date look at employer use of phased retirement.
When we think about the future, there are a number of questions to ask. How long a retirement will be supported by public and employer programs, and who will benefit from these programs? What will be the components of retirement, and how will continued work fit? Will employers support programs to permit a gradual phase-out? Will policy encourage employment of older individuals, and will there be innovation in this regard? To what extent will people be “pushed” out of the labor force? Are there parallel issues in other countries?”
Who Should Attend:
- Professionals and academics interested in designing retirement programs, employment of older workers, human resources, and employee benefits
- People planning their own retirement
- Financial advisors interested in these issues.
- Policymakers and thought leaders interested in the aging society
At the end of this webinar, you will know about how work is often part of retirement, how older worker employment is changing over time, what factors make such work important for employers and employees, and the future of work during retirement.
- For employers: Seminar will offer insights into trends and issues to be considered as they analyze future strategies
- For actuaries and pension consultants: Seminar will offer important information about how retirement is changing and how this should be considered in the development of retirement programs
- Individuals considering retirement: Seminar will offer insights into societal trends and some of the solutions that have been used by individuals and employers
- Financial advisors and counselors: Seminar will offer insights into matters of importance to people nearing retirement
- Policymakers and thought leaders: Seminar will offer insights into highly relevant societal trends and issues.
