Route Your Retirement Fair

Facilitate a Route Your Retirement Fair for working adults of all ages; we’ll help!

The Route Your Retirement Fair is an interactive simulation experience that will have participants thinking ahead about the type of lifestyle they would like to pursue in retirement and then linking their projected lifestyle to their financial plan. Whether just starting out in a career or approaching retirement, the Route Your Retirement Fair will help participants discover what they can do now, today, to improve their financial future.

During the fair, participants visit seven lifestyle stations to make an assessment about personal goals for each aspect of their retirement lifestyle. Individual choices will show how much will likely be spent in each area in retirement. After visiting each station, participants discover how to link their lifestyle choices to their retirement planning and saving.
