Retirement Education and Adulthood
The paper investigated the positive impact of retirement education on the future lives of the adult workers who are very close to retirement. Two hundred prospective retirees were drawn from two ministries and three local government areas in Cross River State with the use of purposive sampling technique to select the sample for the study. Two null hypotheses were formulated and tested. Pearson product moment correlation co-efficient and independent t-test statistical analysis at 0.05 level of significance were employed to analyze the data generated from the data collected. The result of the first hypothesis tested indicated a significant relationship between retirement education and useful adult life. The second hypothesis showed that gender does not constitute a barrier in the adult lives in retirement. The study concluded that retirement education is a panacea for positive crisis-free retirement life. It was recommended that counselors should emphasize the need for retirees to understand the factors capable of causing stress and broken homes.
