to save for retirement of recent Millennial college students about to graduate from four-year
public universities in the United States. The study sought to answer the questions: How prepared
are students to make informed and effective financial decisions related to their retirement at the point where they begin their careers? Which factors influence levels of preparation? What are the levels of intention for these students regarding retirement investment?
Identifying the segments of the new college graduate population that are particularly
unprepared to act on retirement financial decisions is the first step toward intervening in a persistent and growing problem. Higher education administrators equipped with this information,as with existing efforts in student retention, have the ability to develop targeted strategies to improve educational outcomes. The theory of Optimal Retirement Investment is advanced as a result of the study.
