A new study by nonprofit Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies® (TCRS), All About Retirement: An Employer Survey, showcases employers’ perspectives, offerings, and business practices related to employee benefits. The finding suggests that employers may be failing to meet the increasing demand for flexible retirement programs.
As part of its 17th Annual Transamerica Retirement Survey, TCRS interviewed more than 1,800 for-profit employers with five or more employees. This is one of the largest surveys of employers of its kind and includes both those that offer retirement benefits and those that don’t. The report compares findings by company size and offers recommendations for employers, workers, and policymakers. Key findings include:
Are employers aging-friendly?
Is 65 still the magic number?
Is it possible to ease into retirement?
The full report, press release, and more information are available on TCRS’ website. Click here to read an article about the research, Hoping for a Phased Retirement? Don’t Count on It, written by Kerry Hannon.
