Western NY POSTPONED – How To Support And Transition Your Aging Workforce

This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

About The Program

Did you know approximately 50% of our country’s workforce is delaying retirement and/or working past the age of 65?  The truth is, the American workforce is getting older. Employees are voluntarily and involuntarily working longer to cover their outstanding expenses.  Retirement savings are not satisfactory and health insurance  is a major factor.

Are you prepared to support and transition your employees into retirement and beyond?

Join us for a lively conversation around educating on health insurance options and why keeping delayed retirees on a commercial plan is not always the right solution for both entities.  . Healthcare options expand for the 65+ population, which gives access to additional health benefits and lower monthly premiums and out of pocket costs. We’ll also talk about HSA and HRA plans that can help with the financial transition. Being educated on all aspects can provide an optimal experience for this part of the workforce while saving money for the employee and the employer.
