Reports Explain Key Retirement Issue
The Society of Actuaries released a series of very readable reports dealing with specific issues, from how to handle a forced retirement to whether to withdraw savings incrementally.
“Around the time of retirement, there are so many decisions,” said Joseph Tomlinson, chairman of the working group that produced the new reports. The goal of the two-year project was to provide “friendly and unbiased” information, said Tomlinson, a Maine actuary and financial planner.
He said members of the professional organization also felt the public needed information that wasn’t from “someone trying to sell something – and we’re not.”
