How Pre-Retirement Planning Works.
Drake Univ., Des Moines, IA.
This demonstration project was designed to develop and evaluate a pre-retirement planning program, and to train representatives of various organizations to develop their own programs. The seven-session pre-retirement program involved 1,329 participants during its 3 years of operation. The program was evaluated through participant evaluation, observation of behavior changes such as having a will drawn or consulting a trust officer, and determination of changes in attitudes and adjustments. The second phase of the project, involving training in program development, was carried out in a 2-day seminar-workshop held during the project's third year of operation. As a result of project activities, a guide book was developed for each of the two phases. The findings show a positive change in adjustment to retirement among the 50 to 65 age group, as well as an increased involvement in activities to prepare for retirement among those attending the program.
