The 33rd Annual APEX Awards for Publication Excellence has named RetireGuide a winner in the websites category.
“It is such an honor for RetireGuide to receive this award,” said Rachel Christian, writer for RetireGuide. “All the writers on our team are committed to providing accurate, well-sourced and balanced information that people can rely on.”
The APEX Awards, which have been running for more than three decades, recognizes excellence in publishing among corporate and nonprofit organizations. The awards consider content, design and communication among their voting criteria.
RetireGuide is a health and wealth website led by a team of journalists and expert contributors who cover Medicare, retirement planning, life insurance and annuities. The team provides up-to-date and in-depth information for readers across the U.S. and world.
“I am so proud to be a part of a team that took RetireGuide from concept to fully functioning in just a few weeks, almost all of us working remotely at the very beginning of a pandemic,” said Terry Turner, senior writer for the website. “I couldn’t be proud of my colleagues — they’re amazing at what they do.”
RetireGuide’s mission is to provide seniors with the information and resources necessary to make critical financial decisions that will affect their retirement and the rest of their lives.
The website follows a strict editorial process of fact-checking and attribution to reliable sources to ensure content is of the highest quality. The website also regularly interviews and receives insight from financial experts to inform information and coverage.
RetireGuide has been referenced in the U.S. News & World Report, BuzzFeed and GOBankingRates. The website’s guides have also been linked to by the American Bar Association and the Administration for Community Living.
RetireGuide was also named a winner of the 27th Annual FCS Portfolio Awards.
