The Journal of Retirement

Saving for retirement and managing one’s finances in retirement have always posed a challenge. With the decline of the traditional (DB) plan, the proliferation of retirement saving vehicles and alternatives to the traditional annuity, competing claims on households’ income and the pressures on Social Security, the challenge has become daunting.  Older Americans could imperil their retirement security by making misguided or short-sighted decisions, especially if the financial industry failed to provide them with well-designed products. Given the mammoth size of the retirement savings market, financial institutions have strong incentives to develop and market products that will enhance retirement security.

The Journal of Retirement aims to increase our understanding of the decision to save for retirement, the obstacles that can interfere with it, and the role of financial instrument design in promoting it Because of the importance of sustained income in retirement, the JOR will also aim for a better understanding of how households manage their retirement nest egg, why most do not annuitize any of it and the role of alternative ways of managing decumulation.  The impact on retirement security of increasing health and long-term care costs is an important and related topic.

The JOR invites articles from both academics and practitioners that address major and timely issues in retirement security, not necessarily limited to those just stated. Articles may be theoretical, empirical, or policy studies, but all would need to stress the implications for public policy of their findings and avoid excessive technicality. The JOR will focus on retirement savings plans (IRAs, 401(k) plans and other DC plans) but studies of hybrid and even traditional  plans would very relevant as well. Papers assessing the merits of different retirement saving vehicles or lifetime income products would be particularly welcome. Because achieving retirement security is a world-wide challenge, the JOR will welcome submissions on the experience of other countries.

Retirement security is a vital political, social, economic and moral issue. The JOR aims to publish studies that will materially contribute to its enhancement.
