Summary This paper was motivated by the growing literature that suggests that individuals fail to conform to rational economic behaviour when it comes to saving for retirement. A review of the relevant literature confirmed that many individuals fail to save for retirement in a rational way as prescribed by the Modigliani and Brumberg (1954) economic life-cycle model. Numerous studies show that many individuals exhibit irrational behaviour when it comes to planning and saving for retirement. The literature review identified that exposure to financial education programs can positively influence the planning and savings behaviour of retirement fund members.
