Latest Course Uniquely Concentrates on Retirement Income
ATLANTA – June 25, 2015 – The LOMA Secure Retirement Institute™ today announced the recent launch of Successful Retirement Outcomes (SRI 210), an online course which focuses on the increasingly significant topic of retirement income.
With the number of retirees projected to grow to 64 million by 2025, and the number of pre-retirees (age 55+) projected to increase to 45 million by just 2020, financial services companies need to be positioned to help these individuals create the retirement income they will need to enjoy a secure retirement.
“Industry professionals know that an individual’s retirement success requires managing risks and generating income. Successful Retirement Outcomes provides an in-depth study of the income sources, tools, and concepts used in the decumulation phase of retirement,” said Katherine C. Milligan, FLMI, ACS, senior vice president of LOMA’s Education and Training Division. “This course provides industry perspective and context that complements the focused in-house and technical training companies offer. The combined experience results in employees who ‘see the big picture’ and are better able to solve problems, provide solutions, and serve and support clients.”
Offered in a self-paced online format featuring video scenarios and a variety of highly interactive learning features, Successful Retirement Outcomes teaches key business concepts valuable for customer- facing, operations, technology and other associates. Using LOMA’s popular, effective and contemporary online delivery system, participants can complete the new course in approximately 14-16 hours.
Topics covered include:
- Retirement Readiness, Behavioral Economics, and Risks
- Sources of Retirement Income
- Planning for Expenses and Protecting Assets
