2013 Sun Life Canadian Unretirement™ Index November 12, 2013 11:30 AM to 1:15 PM Hotel Saskatchewan, Regina, Saskatchewan Format: In Person Award-winning marketer and journalist Kevin Press, currently the Assistant Vice-President, Market Insights at Sun Life Financial, will discuss the Sun Life Canadian Unretirement Index and the three key retirement trends it suggests we will see in the short-term future. Firstly, early retirement may soon be a thing of the past, with only a quarter of Canadians expecting to be retired at 66. Next, unretirement means different things to different people. Some will work past 65 by choice, but the current study shows that most Canadians who expect to work past 65 say they’ll do so for economic reasons. Finally, with only one-third of Canadians satisfied with their retirement savings, there is a role for plan sponsors – in partnership with their providers – to help.
