We are in the early stages of the greatest retirement crisis in the history of our nation and, indeed, the entire world. One thing is certain: doing nothing―sitting back, confident your pension check is “in the mail”―is not an option. That’s a risk you can’t afford to take.

According to Edward "Ted" Siedle, a former attorney with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and America’s leading expert in pension looting, “In the decades to come, we will witness hundreds of millions of elders worldwide, including America’s Baby Boomers, slipping into poverty. Too frail to work, too poor to retire will become the “new normal” for many of the aged.”

In their book "Who Stole My Pension?", the authors focus on the most misunderstood and ignored cause of the pension crisis: mismanagement of pensions and investments.

Robert and Ted recount a history of pension failures, inexperienced boards, gambling, looting, and other horror stories―with a focus on action steps workers and retirees can take to quickly determine if a pension is being mismanaged as well as the concrete steps they can take to end decades of pension mismanagement. They detail critical questions retirees can ask―and guidance regarding how to act on what they learn.
