Welcome to the
Retirement Planning Research Laboratory
The Retirement Planning Research Laboratory is dedicated to the study of when, why, and how effectively individuals plan for retirement. Our focus is on understanding how differences in psychological, social, and economic factors lead to differences in financial savings outcomes and retirement quality of life. We encourage you to explore our web site in order to learn more about the psychological basis of retirement planning.
