Staff report


The three-part Youngstown State University Alumni Lecture Series, presented by the Office of Alumni Events and Management, begins with “The Outlook for Individuals’ Retirement Security in the United States,” hosted by Jill McCullough at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Williamson Hall Auditorium.

The lecture will focus on the issue of retirement security for baby boomers and Generation X-ers who face a different circumstance than their parents did, due to longer life spans and lack of saving and pension plans.

The event will explore policy solutions and address steps individuals should take to ensure their retirement security. The presentation will include five common mistakes to avoid when planning your retirement, how to access resources and the current state of the nation’s retirement readiness.
