Firm Rolls out Web Site for Pre-Retirees

Convergent Retirement Plan Solutions, LLC, has launched Learning to Retire, an interactive, online learning application designed to help educate near-retirees about the upcoming transition.

The company said in a release that the new offering was designed to reduce the confusion and stress often associated with planning for the transition into retirement: confusion and stress that so often cause individuals to avoid planning altogether.

According to the release, Learning to Retire incorporates a retirement readiness quiz with user feedback and a resource portal with links to various federal and nonprofit Web destinations pre-retirees may visit for further information.

The product can be branded and customized to reflect each provider’s unique value proposition, and includes education on a wide range of retirement transition topics, both financial and nonfinancial, the release said.

“We wanted to create something completely new, something accessible and fun that would help near-retirees gain confidence, a sense of control over their destinies, and something that would prompt action,” said Loni Porta, Convergent’s director of education, in the release.
