AnnotationAt the time of this study in the late 1960s, it appeared that adequate retirement adjustment was concern of a large segment of business management in the US; but for some reason the growth of pre-retirement counselling programmes had not increased significantly. Well under half of American companies were making any attempt to prepare their employees; and probably less than 10% of these companies had what could be called intensive pre-retirement programmes. This study was designed to determine whether or not retirees with counselling were better adjusted than those without. (RH).
