Richardson, Virginia; Kilty, Keith M.
Gerontologist, v32 n1 p7-16 Feb 1992
Examined preretirement intentions of 234 African-American professionals. Found that professionals who were highly committed to their work, had few financial investments, and socialized primarily with co-workers tended to avoid planning for retirement. Results have implications for practitioners concerned with meeting preretirement and retirement needs of older African Americans. (Author/NB)
