Investing in 2017: Finding a Solution That Works For You

Part of what makes retirement planning a challenge is that we are often planning for the unknown. Things like how long we'll live, how our investments will perform,and what healthcare we'll need are questions we don't have definite answers to, yet we still need to factor them in. This issue offers ideas on planning for the unknown. While we can't predict the future, the more we plan ahead, the more prepared we will be for life's surprises.

Thanks for a Successful Event!

wiser in the news

Thank you to all of the speakers, sponsors and attendees who participated in WISER's forum on June 21st. The Millennial Perspective: An Intergenerational Discussion on Retirement Solutions was a great success! The forum featured the iOme Challenge winning team of students who discussed their advisory paper in response to this year's Challenge question. The iOme Challenge is a national competition to raise awareness of the nation's retirement crisis and the need for the millennial generation to save for their futures.

A keynote speaker, panels of experts and congressional staff leaders also discussed current legislative proposals. Click here for more event details.

Featured Publication: Divorce & Retirement

WISER recently published a new edition of its guide, Divorce and Retirement: Take Control of Retirement Benefits. Because pension and retirement benefits are not automatically split in a divorce, this short, common-sense guide emphasizes the importance of these benefits and offers valuable information on marital property, negotiating an agreement, and getting a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). Download the guide and share with others going through or considering a divorce.
