Retirement is being entirely transformed by a number of powerful converging forces: the steady rise of life expectancy, the aging of the massive Baby Boomer generation, growing health and wealth inequities across racial groups and gender, an alarming absence of financial preparation by Americans and the historic COVID-19 pandemic effect. Retirees today view retirement as a whole new chapter in life, and the four pillars of the new retirement are inextricably interconnected and enormously important, each playing an essential role when it comes to optimal well-being in retirement. This webinar provides quantitative and qualitative insights into how Americans have fared during the pandemic, and reveals what retirees describe as essential elements of living well in retirement. 

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Identify four key elements that retirees describe as essential to achieving optimal well-being in retirement.
  • Identify the greatest concerns and fears of retirees and pre-retirees.
  • Deepen their understanding of how the pandemic has impacted Americans of all ages.
