This webinar provides an overview of retirement planning principles, including the three main components of retirement income and savings: Social Security retirement benefits, employer pension/retirement plans, and personal savings and investments. The Library Resources webinar series is designed to familiarize library staff with information and resources they can use to help patrons who have questions about retirement planning and other financial topics. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) supports librarians by providing free publications, access to online financial education tools, program ideas, outreach materials, a partnership guidebook, and training webinars, like this one, so they can guide patrons to unbiased informational resources.
