RETIREMENT READINESS REPORT, a free monthly eNewsletter
RETIREMENT READINESS REPORT is a monthly eNewsletter distributed free to thousands of human resource professionals, pension fund executives, and union leaders. Each month it includes a feature article relating to the financial and/or non-financial issues that older employees need to consider as they approach and then pass into retirement. Each issue also includes a review of a recent book helpful to people in this situation, as well as a review of a website that offers information or services for those getting ready to retire, or already retired.
