The event is designed to bring together legislators, academia and the financial services industry to provide an engaging forum for discussion. Iowans are invited to the table to discuss the retirement issues and topics important to them.

The day will feature remarks from U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley and Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack. Each will provide an overview on what the government is doing to help Americans in retirement. The day will also include a series of conversations on various retirement issues. Topics include:

Living Life in Retirement: A roundtable discussion on retirement lifestyle issues, including health, long-term care, driving, housing and overall quality of life.

The Difficult Conversations: An interactive dialogue about those hard retirement-related topics that often are not discussed between spouses or between parents and adult children.

Where's the Money: A roundtable discussion about sources of income in retirement, accumulation and distribution of income, the role of Social Security, private savings, pensions, and the growing trend of working in retirement.
