Pre-retirement education models and content: A New England study
Representatives from 245 organizations in four New England states were interviewed to determine whether they offered preretirement education and planning (PREP) programs and, if so, what formats and content were involved. Slightly more than half the sample sponsored some type of retirement education. One-on-one consulting was the most frequently offered PREP format, followed by group sessions. Most retirement education was offered by personnel internal to the organization. The content usually highlighted in these programs was related to financial concerns. Implications for educational gerontologists and organizations sponsoring PREP programs are discussed.
