The Women¿s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) was awarded a three year cooperative agreement to operate the National Education and Resource Center on Women and Retirement Planning (The Center) in FY2010. The Center serves as a national clearinghouse for tools and information on retirement planning and related financial education materials. WISER¿s mission is to inform women about the issues that affect their long-term financial security and to stress the importance of women taking an active role in planning for their retirement. The Center objectives include supporting the integration of the concepts of basic financial and retirement planning into the structure of Older Americans Act (OAA) Programs and to improve women¿s access to basic financial and retirement planning and other educational tools that promote financial literacy by coordinating with national professional, membership, regional, statewide and local organizations. These collaborative efforts promote the piloting and adapting of ¿user-friendly¿ financial and retirement planning models. In Year 1, with the Center partner, the National Council on Aging, WISER developed and tested a targeted outreach financial education program model for working with low-income women ages 55+ through the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). Plans are to continue work with NCOA to bring this model to the program¿s other centers across the country during the upcoming year. WISER will continue work with its partners the National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA on CEASE, the national initiative to stop elder financial exploitation through education and prevention and with the Center for American Nurses Association on financial education and retirement planning workshops.
