Financial professionals can teach clients how technology can help them stay mobile, healthy, and connected as they age
For the next generation of retirees, one question will trump all others: How do you add life to longer lives? As people live longer, and spend more time in retirement, the challenge will be to get more out of those years. How do you find a rewarding second career? How do you stay close with friends and family? How do you maintain independence and mobility? How do you embrace new experiences?
Tech Adds Life to Longer Lives
The answer: technology. With the advent of smartphones and constant connectedness, a new peer-to-peer, on-demand economy has emerged. With a simple swipe or tap of an app, information and services are available at our fingertips.
Overview: How Tech Can Help Solve the Challenges of Aging (2:42)
John Diehl, Sr. VP of Applied Insights, Hartford Funds, explains how you can inspire aging clients about the possibilities of using apps, sites and devices.
5 Ways Tech Will Change Retirement
This new economy of connections is what will enable us to live fuller lives as we age, and it touches five important aspects of our lives:
|1||Download or order the client workbook paper|
|2||List five of your favorite apps either from the worksheet or that you’ve found on your own|
|3||Discuss the apps with your clients and offer to help them experience them. For example, take them for an Uber ride, or show them how to sign up for an EdX class.|
