11:35-12:35PM   Panel Discussion - Ensuring Financial Security For Young Americans 

Young adults disproportionately lack the financial education necessary to make  informed decisions about major financial issues, particularly their retirement savings. The lack of financial literacy is compounded by high levels of debt. Together, these patterns are especially worrisome given that the decline of defined benefit pensions has left the responsibility for retirement security largely in the hands of individual workers.
