Retirement Heist

Ellen Schultz documents the biggest heist in history, all the more horrifying because it is legal. It is no secret that hundreds of companies have been slashing the pensions and health coverage earned by millions of retirees.

Retirement Heist is a scathing expose of one of the most critical and least understood crises of our time. Ms. Schultz, an investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal, reveals how large employers and the retirement industry have played a huge and hidden role in the death spiral of American pensions and benefits. Though the focus is on large companies—which drive the legislative agenda—the same games are being played at smaller companies, nonprofits, and public pension plans.
