Retirement Wealth


WASHINGTON, D.C.//March 18, 2010//Many Americans who are nearing retirement have seen their investments drop significantly in the market turmoil of the past few years. Others are more comfortably set for their retirement, but could still be derailed by swindlers, catastrophic medical expenses, and other threats. Some Americans are already retired and worry about how to properly manage their money to last throughout their golden years.

These investors and others will benefit from a major new resource being made available today from the nonprofit Alliance for Investor Education (AIE) highlighting 12 of the best Web-based resources for older investors looking to grow, protect and manage their retirement savings. The Alliance's new "Retirement Wealth Know-How: Investor Education for Seniors" is available at http://www.investoreducation.org/retirementwealth.

AIE is the organization of the 20 leading U.S. financial-related foundations, nonprofit organizations, associations and governmental agencies.

Alliance for Investor Education President Dallas Salisbury, who also serves as president and CEO of the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and chairman of the American Savings Education Council (ASEC), said: "Americans at or approaching retirement age have different needs from those in other life stages. While some will continue to put as much as they can into savings or lower risk investments, others who have already retired need to know how to manage their savings and investments to make them last. Senior investors are often particularly targeted by con artists. Members of the Alliance are devoted to raising awareness of the ways that those who are nearing or already in retirement can strengthen and protect their retirement nest egg."

The new "Retirement Wealth Know-How: Investor Education for Seniors" section of the AIE Web site features the following 12 top resources for consumers:

  2. Take Charge Before a Bad Deal Takes You - Investor Protection Trust.
