Re-Tool Your At-Risk Retirement—NOW!

MAKE YOUR YEAR-END DONATION TODAY

The Pressing Challenge

Today’s workers are living longer than ever—but they are typically let go in their 50s and early 60s. A great gap has grown between the choices they want and what traditional employers offer. A recent SHRM survey found 64% of workers age 50-64 hope to work longer and ease into retirement, but only 5% of employers offer such options as formal programs.

What Is Phased Retirement?

True phased retirement enables a steady reduction in percentage of time worked over several years, e.g. year 1-90%, year 2-80%, etc. Partial retirement is a reduction to a static schedule, e.g., 80% or 60%. Both options typically include reduced salary and full or prorated benefits.

The Creative Solution

Advocates and pre-retirees have been seeking change for twenty years—without result. Whether to avoid outliving savings or to remain engaged, they are ready to act.

Respectful Exits is creating The Phazer™—a proven tool for employees to propose a win-win path to flexible and phased retirement. With your modest investment, we will build out this universal tool for free distribution to any worker who wants it.

CEO Paul Rupert describes The Phazer™

Why Do You Need The Phazer?

A successful request for phased or partial retirement depends on careful diagnosis of your work environment and a systematic, business-oriented proposal. In our guidance for requesting phased retirement we recommend the following steps at a minimum:

  1. Assess your environment
  2. Start with your employer in mind
  3. Develop a written proposal
  4. Submit your proposal, set a conversation
  5. If accepted, plan regular evaluations

But making this request carries greater risk than most flexible work options because it involves conversations about your interest in possible retirement. That’s why The Phazer is a critical piece of the process.

The Phazer

This comprehensive tool is based on techniques that have worked for individual employees for more than a decade. This new and improved version will support a range of choices and provide the framework, documents, guidance and tips that aging workers need to safely pursue better futures with their current employer. Early donors will have the opportunity to preview the tool and help maximize its effectiveness for a broad range of situations.

BOOMER EXODUS

From 2011 until 2029, 10,000 Boomers a day—or 60 million people—turned and will turn 65.

That’s the equivalent of one-and-a-half Californias.

INCREASED LONGEVITY

Life expectancy is up 20 years, yet workers are discarded at 65 or earlier.

Social Security set the retirement eligibility age at 65 in 1936.

IMPENDING POVERTY

50% of workers 50-64 have less than $14,000 in savings to last 20-30 years.

Invested, that yields $50 per month.

RETIREMENT DEMAND

64% of workers hope to work longer and ease into retirement, while 5% of employers offer formal programs.

The demand increases, but the supply does not.
