year's conference will feature Theresa Ghilarducci, The New
School, as the opening keynote and Jodi DiCenzo, Behavioral Research
Associates, as the closing speaker.
Theresa Ghilarducci will
speak on Fixing the US
Retirement System. Independent experts agree this is the first time
in US history the majority of working Americans will do worse than their
parents and grandparents in retirement. More elderly will work or look for work
and pay off more debt than ever before as more retirement assets are skewed
toward the very highest income retirees. The top 20% of baby boomers own 72% of
all retirement assets. And, nearly half of workers have no plan at work
because the system is voluntary. A national solution includes strengthening
Social Security and increasing retirement savings with better tax policy and
a requirement every worker to save at least 5% into a state or federally-administered
retirement account. Because the federal government has not acted, today
five states have acted to create retirement accounts for all
workers. State DC plans for their government workers stand as a model for
a national solution to the retirement crises.
CFA, CPA, will speak on Behaviorally
Based Retirement Programs: What It Means and Why Administrators Should Care.
Ms. DiCenzo will eliminate any doubt the application of behavioral
decision-making knowledge is essential for cost-effective management of
successful, participant-directed retirement programs. Successful
administrators of participant-directed retirement plans must continue to
develop competencies in understanding and applying key behavioral research to
cost-effectively maximize employees' retirement security. Attendees will
gain solid foundational knowledge of key retirement-related behavioral research
- including its practical implications. Session attendees will also leave
knowing where to turn to stay ahead of the behavioral research
