In addition, health or other reasons may cause them to retire earlier than planned. Employees can also be reminded to adjust their spending and financial health now to prepare for a new reality in retirement. Plan sponsors can offer education and tools to help participants with their retirement planning. Enjoy this edition of PLANSPONSOR Weekend!
