THE ABCs OF PLANNING FOR RETIREMENT: BEST RESOURCES ON IRAs HIGHLIGHTED BY ALLIANCE FOR INVESTOR EDUCATION

WASHINGTON, D.C.//September 20, 2007//The nonprofit Alliance for Investor Education (AIE) is spotlighting seven of the best available IRA resources for investors planning how to invest for retirement. AIE is a 22-member organization of the United States' leading financial-related foundations, nonprofit organizations, associations and governmental agencies.

The Alliance's collection of top resources "IRAs: The ABCs of Planning for Retirement" is available at http://www.investoreducation.org/IRAs.

Alliance for Investor Education President Michael D. Jones, who also serves as senior executive vice president and chief administrative officer for the Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA), said, "As the Investment Company Institute points out in a recent study, retirement assets now account for nearly 40 percent of household financial assets, with investors holding $8.3 trillion in IRAs and defined-contribution plans at the end of 2006. The Alliance for Investor Education wants to make it as easy as possible for investors to learn more about how to put IRAs to work for themselves."
