Building Expertise Web Conference - "Do We Have a Retirement Crisis in America?"

Web Presentation 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. EST

March 2003 |

To effectively design, administer, and communicate an employer-provided pension plan, it takes keen awareness and thorough understanding of the underlying market forces that shape retirement. What are the current trends in pension coverage? And what are the implications for individual retirement income? This web conference presented data and insights that will help bring the landscape clearly into focus. The changing age structure of the United States population and the potential impact on Social Security and Medicare were examined. Armed with knowledge about what lies ahead for the large group of baby boomers approaching retirement, you can be more impactful when encouraging employees to take greater responsibility for their own financial futures.

Intended primarily for benefits professional, this web conference was presented by Douglas Fore, Assistant Director of Research, TIAA-CREF Institute, and moderated by Raymond Schmierer, Assistant Director of Education, TIAA-CREF Institute. The session included content that can be utilized when communicating with and providing benefits education to employees and also included suggestions for how private pension plans might be improved.

This web conference was approved for one credit hour toward PHR and SPHR recertification through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI).
