By WVUA 23 Web Writer Heather Buchanan

Alabama Public Television will air an hour-long documentary on saving and investing for retirement called “When I’m 65” on Sunday at 6 p.m.

Produced by Detroit Public Television, the program includes topics such as saving with a 401(k) or IRA, how long to work before retiring and what happens to Social Security benefits if a person has to work longer than planned.

Joseph Borg, director of the Alabama Securities Commission, said the program is geared toward helping citizens navigate the world of retirement issues for people of all ages.

“Whether 65 is far off in the future or right around the corner, building a secure retirement should be a chief concern for every Alabama citizens,” Borg said.

Other topics addressed in the program include the effect of increasing life expectancy on retirement plans, housing and support services and bipartisan support of retirement policy changes.

The documentary was supported by the non-profit Investor Protection Trust and the Investor Protection Institute, with contributions by the Alabama Securities Commission, the Iowa Insurance Division, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs and the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities.
