Pictured: program title graphic When I’m 65
The old picture of retirement – a life of total leisure fully supported by a hefty pension, social security, and medical benefits – seems completely unattainable to most Americans today. With the near complete phasing out of defined benefit retirement plans and the sweeping move towards defined contribution plans, much of the responsibility for retirement planning today sits squarely on the shoulders of individuals. Narrated by David Brancaccio of American Public Media’s Marketplace, WHEN I'M 65 challenges longstanding myths about retirement and living longer, and explores changing attitudes toward work, debt, housing and the financial realities of the 21st century.
