BOSTON, January 17, 2023 Fidelity Investments® and the Association of Retirement Organizations in Higher Education (AROHE) announce “Reimagining Retirement: Exploring Your Life Plan,” a three-part virtual learning series exploring the social, psychological, and emotional aspects of transitioning to, and living in, retirement. The series is geared toward faculty and staff in higher education who are contemplating retirement or are already retired, with the goal of helping attendees to clarify their goals and embrace the changes that occur during life’s next chapter.

“Many college and university faculty and staff approaching retirement age have dedicated half their lives or more to their work,” said Sangeeta Moorjani, executive vice president and head of tax-exempt business and retirement solutions at Fidelity. “Their status as educators is a huge piece of their identity, so there is naturally a concern that comes along with detaching from their work extending far beyond the financial aspects of retirement. We are proud to team up with AROHE to explore these feelings and help provide comfort and understanding around this next chapter of life.”

University faculty and staff can struggle with the idea of retiring because they fear a feeling of detachment from their work and a loss of status that they worked so long to achieve. This virtual learning series addresses these concerns through three sessions: “Reframing Your Identity,” scheduled for January 30; “Reimagining Your Personalized Plan,” scheduled for February 13; and “Rebuilding Your Network,” scheduled for February 27. All sessions are at 10 a.m. PST.

“At any point in time, we are faced with changes and transitions,” said Roger Baldwin, President of AROHE. “While there is guidance and support for many life transitions – such as choosing and graduating from a college, starting a career, getting married, and having children – fewer resources are available for those navigating transitions later in life, especially when it involves changes in relationships, purpose and meaning, and feelings of relevance derived from work.”
