Abstract (Summary)

Retirement in the United States is changing. Baby Boomers are working longer than previous cohorts and may postpone retirement. A literature review revealed the number of adults 65 years of age or over in the United States is projected to increase dramatically through 2030, with a larger percentage of these individuals remaining in the work force longer than prior cohorts. Previous studies showed that retirement planning programs have a positive impact on participants' life satisfaction and adjustment to retirement. Knowledge and understanding of identified issues could positively affect participants' successful transition into their third age.

This project presents an innovative retirement planning course outline that incorporates financial, sociological, psychological, and physiological issues encountered during the transition from full-time work into retirement, including health promotion and disease prevention strategies. The report contains a course outline, presenter information form, course and presenter evaluation, course press release, marketing information, and suggested readings.
