Planning for Retirement: How to Prepare and Present a Pre-Retirement Program.
Massachusetts Univ., Amherst. Labor Relations and Research Center.
The history of the labor unions has been a history of men helping their fellows. Preretirement counseling and guidance is clearly an area where the labor unions could continue their heritage of collective self-help. The retiree faces new problems in Social Security and Medicare, health and nutrition, financial and legal adjustments, time and leisure, a host of consumer problems, housing, and taxes, in addition to making ends meet. The initial impetus for the development of a preretirement program may come from any source: union officials, union members, company officials, community agencies, those recently retired, or even an outside agency. The first step is the formation of a special committee to develop a preretirement program. The committee performs a number of functions: (1) recruitment of the persons expecting to retire in the next five years, (2) selection of a meeting place, (3) planning for subject matter and locating resource persons. Suggestions for recruiting students and running programs and a program outline are provided. (BP)
