PHOENIX– Questions regarding retirement are at the forefront of many Americans minds as Baby Boomers have begun to move into retirement age, many of whom find themselves less prepared for the new challenges retirement presents.
To address these questions the National Press Foundation is offering an all-expenses-paid four-day fellowships for journalists to its 9th annual education program on “Retirement Issues.”
The program has been created to inform journalist on this complex issue and to assist them in providing accurate and educated information to the public.
Discussion topics will include:
Who can afford to retire?
What should retirees know about managing their money?
What should we expect from Social Security?
What would be the impact of adopting a chained CPI?
Is long-term care insurance a viable option?
What tools exist to help low-income workers save for retirement?
How should younger workers approach retirement saving?
The application deadline is Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, 5:00 PM EST.
More information about the program and the online application is available here.
