For the past several years, purveyors of financial products and advice have been educating Baby Boomers about the importance of building retirement assets. In late 2008, MetLife began using a select group of its advisors from its sales ranks to present retirement planning seminars to employees of its benefits client companies. The program, called retirewise, grew quickly from 250 companies participating initially to 450 by the end of 2009. The ultimate goal of retirewise is to broaden the market for MetLife retirement products among the employees of its employer group clients. The program is designed to get employees thinking about a wide range of risks and income sources that will shape their retirement living. The subject matter, presented over a series of four seminars, includes financial risks, health risks, governmental benefits and how to structure an income stream.
