With increasing healthcare costs, pension cuts, and the fate of social security in question, many are left to figure out how to fund retirement on their own. Many haven't begun saving at all. Currently 45% of Americans have nothing saved for retirement. Join WHYY for a preview screening of When I'm 65, a documentary exploring the psychology, sociology and future of retirement. WHYY's Mark Eichmann will lead a discussion about how the times and timing, even our own perspective, affect us and discuss questions posed by Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials alike, including: What if I have to work longer than expected before I can retire? What will happen to Social Security? What are the factors shaping the future of my retirement? Panelists will include: Jack Bogle, The Vanguard Group; Dr. Andrew Hill, Economic Education Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia; Cindy Hounsell, President, WISER; Dr. Joseph Friedman, Professor of Economics, Temple University. When I'm 65 will air on WHYY-TV on Sunday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m. This event is made possible with support from Detroit Public Television, the Investor Protection Trust, the Investor Protection Institute and the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities.
