1. Ready for the Retirement Boom?

76 million baby boomers are ready to redefine retirement. Are they-or you-ready for what's to come? See what other benefits directors are saying. Download our white paper.

The generation that said don’t trust anyone over 30 is about to retire—in record numbers. Nearly 76 million baby boomers are projected to retire over the next 20 years. And with over 8,000 people turning 65 every day, are they, or you, ready for what’s to come?

In the fall of 2010, the firm Padilla Spear Beardsley conducted an independent survey of over 400 benefits directors across the U.S., asking their thoughts about the coming retirement boom. They answered questions like: Are employees prepared to manage the transition into retirement? Are they equipped to make wise decisions on such critical issues as investments, Medicare, Social Security and health insurnce? Should employers help?

The survey revealed a troubling gap between what HR directors saw as needed, and available, support for their retiring employees. In fact, 80 percent of those surveyed believe their organization isn’t doing enough to prepare their employees for the transition to retirement.

Unlike their large-company counterparts, they lack the time and resources to build infrastructure and processes that are beyond core business objectives. But if entrepreneurs and smaller business owners are focused solely on growth and product, how do they know what issues to look for in order to protect the company? This is a must-read paper that discusses th top 5 HR compliance issues they may face.
