Destruction of Pensions and Social Security Examined at the Retirement Industry Conference
Atlanta, GA / Schaumburg, IL / Windsor, CT-Wednesday,
March 07, 2007-Federal rulings intended to protect defined
benefit pensions have actually had the opposite effect. Today, such
plans have essentially been destroyed and supplanted by defined
contribution products. Uncertainties surrounding the solvency of
Social Security have also changed the retirement landscape, leaving
workers confused and unclear about suitable options.
These topics will be discussed at the Retirement Industry
Conference, April 18-20, 2007 in Atlanta, GA. The conference will
also offer numerous sessions covering trends in variable annuity
product design and distribution, underlying sub-accounts,
electronic and paper-free processing and more.
Sponsored by LIMRA, LOMA, and Society of Actuaries, The
Retirement Industry Conference offers insight on annuities,
retirement plans and retirement income. For more information, visit
