About the Webinar
The huge American baby boom generation is entering retirement just as the economy has pivoted in a direction most didn’t anticipate. The housing crash, high jobless rate, faltering entitlement programs and volatile stock markets have created new challenges for a generation that had been somewhat blasé in its approach to retirement planning in the pre-crash days. Now, Boomers are struggling to adjust to what is shaping up as a prolonged period of economic challenge. Join us as retirement journalist and author Mark Miller discusses his book, The Hard Times Guide to Retirement Security: Practical Strategies for Money, Work and Living. He'll outline the key trends affecting Boomers’ personal finances, career and lifestyle trends.
