NICSA Joins Coalition for National Retirement Planning Week

NICSA Joins Education, Advocacy and Industry Leaders in Sponsoring National Retirement Planning Week®


April 2, 2011, Boston, MA — Reports show that this year the first of 79 million Baby Boomers will turn 65, and that 4 million boomers will turn 60 each year for the next 18 years. For many, this milestone will present a much-needed opportunity to reassess their level of retirement preparedness. Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) research shows that nearly seven out of 10 Boomers within five years of retirement, and nearly eight out of 10 of Boomers outside of that window, stated that they are concerned about having adequate income during retirement.
