Economic insecurity has become a defining risk for the next generation of older adults. Nationally, more than 28 million older adults are just one “bad break” away from facing significant financial hardship. The challenge is that the majority of older adults, especially those that are struggling with lower incomes, do not know where to go for assistance or feel overwhelmed by the prospect of exploring these options. What can we do to improve 21st century retirement for older adults? This session dives into the financial challenges faced by older adults, and details practical solutions for how America should approach retirement as the older population continues to grow.
