Dallas Salisbury, president and chief executive officer of the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and chairman of the American Savings Education Council (ASEC), urged all Americans to Web-view a recent PBS Frontline documentary on retirement as a valuable opportunity to learn about the need to save. He disputed a statement issued Tuesday by the Profit Sharing/401(k) Council of America calling on workers to disregard the program. Press release.
PBS Frontline Special: “Can You Afford to Retire?": This hour-long program was originally aired on the Public Broadcasting Service May 16, 2006 but can now be viewed online. In addition, the PBS Web site provides additional information such as: Frequently Asked Questions about pensions, 401(k)s and how much to save for retirement; analysis and articles on what's gone wrong and what's ahead; and transcripts of interviews with industry insiders and retirement experts as they discuss the state of retirement today.
