Retire on Track

New Retirement Fair Materials Available for Credit Unions

For the first time, credit union organizations can order “Retire on Track” materials from the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) to hold a Retirement Fair.

The Foundation's REAL Solutions program, in cooperation with CUNA Mutual Group, developed the Retirement Fair, "Retire on Track", to assist credit unions help their members and staff better prepare for retirement.

The fair is designed to have people think more carefully about the type of lifestyle they would like to pursue in retirement and then link it to their financial plan. “Retire on Track” is applicable to people of all ages, not just those nearing retirement.
