Have You Ever Considered Offering a Phased Retirement Program?

Phased retirement includes a range of flexible retirement approaches that would allow employees approaching normal retirement age the option to reduce the hours worked while phasing into complete retirement. For employees, phased retirement may be seen as a benefit by many older workers. It allows them to gradually ease into retirement while maintaining a higher income than they would receive if they quit work entirely. It could also help employees prepare for greater retirement readiness. Find out more about this program in the September issue of the Sikich Retirement Times.

Are You Hearing About Financial Wellness?

Employers have heard a lot about financial wellness. However, employers don’t always recognize the connection between financial wellness and improved retirement savings behavior as well as a more productive workforce overall. This is becoming an important feature that plan sponsors are adding to their current retirement plan. This and much more can be found in the September issue of the Sikich Retirement Times.
