By Rebecca Moore editors@plansponsor.com | April 15, 2013

April 15, 2013 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – Next week, Public Broadcasting System’s (PBS) Frontline program will air a documentary called “The Retirement Gamble.”

According to the organization’s website, the film raises questions about how America’s financial institutions protect retirement savings. It asks “Will your IRAs or 401(k) accounts ensure a safe retirement?”  

The documentary is further described as an examination of retirement accounts, including the lack of uniformity in plans, which results in some workers paying much more than others; the cost of a seemingly small annual fee when spread out across a worker's lifetime; and hidden fees. 

Local listings and the trailer for “The Retirement Gamble” can be found at www.pbs.org/frontline.
