The webinar, "Generational Challenges Impacting Retirement Readiness," will highlight findings of research conducted by the nonprofit Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, including the unique and varying challenges facing Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials. The webinar will focus on what can be done to best communicate to each of these generational audiences, clear actions plan sponsors can take to improve the retirement outcomes of their employees, and how financial professionals can help drive optimal retirement outcomes.

The webinar's featured speaker is Catherine Collinson, a well-known advocate for the retirement readiness of American workers.  Ms. Collinson is president of the Transamerica Institute and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. She is a nationally recognized voice on trends facing plan sponsors and their participants.

The webinar is the latest in Transamerica's Retirement Industry Speakers Bureau series for financial professionals, where guest speakers are invited to offer unique insight on issues facing retirement plan sponsors, as well as their advisors, consultants and service providers. The webinar will be approximately one hour in length.

"Plan sponsors look to financial professionals for insight and expert advice on how to drive better retirement outcomes for their employees. A 'one size fits all' approach is likely not the best strategy for motivating people to save for retirement," said Deb Rubin, senior vice president and national practice leader, third party administration and professional retirement plan advisor distribution for Transamerica Retirement Solutions. "Catherine offers powerful insight on how to best communicate with audiences of different generations, and offers a unique perspective on what can be done to motivate people to save more for retirement. We are offering financial professionals a meaningful opportunity to explore these issues and ultimately increase their value to their plan sponsor clients."

Financial advisors and third party administrators can register for the webinar by calling Transamerica at 888-401-5826, Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. ET.
