Targeted Benefits Help Baby Boomers Stay at Work, Prepare to Retire | SHRM
"Many older workers facing the same types of issues can benefit from the support of their colleagues. Employers can bring in an expert each month to talk about relevant topics, such as wellness or financial literacy, which are important for pre-retirement planning.

One of the most important benefits an employer can offer older workers is a legal-benefits plan that provides employees with legal advice and representation for personal legal matters, such as wills and estate planning and preparations for eldercare. These are all essential matters for older workers.” - Sean Nehlsen, Regional Managing Director, OneDigital Cleveland
