Can You Help Me Come Up With Some Retirement Trivia Questions?

I’m seeking the creative minds of readers today, and I’m looking for some suggestions in coming up with retirement related trivia questions. Our annual benefits fair runs through the end of the week and I’ll be meeting with hundreds of employees and trying to educate and get people excited about and aware of their retirement plan.

One of the ideas I had was to engage people who stop at the booth by letting them draw a trivia card that has a question related to their specific retirement plan, or retirement planning/investing in general. If they get the question right, they receive one of the various goodies I have to give away: t-shirts, hats, magnets, pens, post-it note pads, etc.

I have come up with a few questions already that relate to the plan specifically. Things like “What percentage does the company match?” and “What is the name of the company that sponsors your plan” and so on. But I’m looking for even more ideas, questions that will get people to stop and think, and hopefully encourage people to enroll if they aren’t already.

Let Me Hear Your Ideas

So, I’m opening up the comments to ideas for questions. They can be really easy questions, or somewhat difficult questions as I may structure what type of prize is given based on the difficulty of the question. They can be fill in the blank, multiple choice, or just standard questions as well. Hopefully there are readers that are more creative than I am, as my questions are pretty dry!
