A Report on the Pre-Retirement Programs of the Division.
Wilson, Thomas W.
The Pre-Retirement Program Section of the Division for Senior Citizens, Department of Human Resources, Chicago, is charged with providing consultation and technical assistance in pre-retirement education and planning for business, industry, labor, government, and other groups in the area. Current activities of the section include serving as a consultant to employers who are interested in or are presently conducting retirement counseling programs. The section staff members fill speaking engagements to discuss facets of retirement planning. Research is being conducted by the section on types and levels of pre-retirement programs in the area, 100 organizations being presently involved. The division's workshop program is a vital part of the on-going training program for pre-retirement planning counselors. Plans for the future include: (1) exploring the feasibility of a cooperative division/university-sponsored field-work program for training college students to become retirement planning counselors; (2) effecting greater cooperation between labor and management in retirement program preparation; (3) stimulating interest in retirement planning among smaller employers; (4) developing a program cost-analysis form for use by clients; and (5) assisting colleges in offering retirement planning courses through adult education and evening courses.
