Successful Retirement Strategies: Whether you are just getting started, at the peak of your career, or heading into or living life in retirement, this two-part class will help you make the most of what you have.  Planning to reach your goals is the best way to make that vision for your future a reality.  In today’s world of early retirements and longer life spans, formal retirement planning is a must to ensure independence and a lifestyle that will make you comfortable during your retirement years. Invest some of your time to learn ways to minimize the devastating impact of taxes and inflation that eat away at your retirement savings. Attend and learn effective tools to help you meet your goals, while overcoming the negative impact of inflation and taxes on your assets. Learn how to better diversify to help reduce risk for your hard-earned assets, and why most of us will continue to need growth on our assets throughout retirement if our money is to last. Learn strategies for withdrawing your money in retirement, and how understanding behavior patterns and how different types of investments can play a role in your successful retirement plan.  Learn the basics you need to know about IRAs/Roth IRAs, Social Security, long term care, estate planning, and much more. Following the class, you will have the option of a personal consultation with your course instructor to review your individual situation. Take action to ensure your financial future is on track by signing up for Successful Retirement Strategies now! 

Financial Strategies for Successful Retirement: Financial Strategies is not just about managing your money.  It's about managing your future. These three sessions will teach you proven tax-reduction techniques and powerful money management ideas.  You'll find out how to build a diversified investment portfolio. You'll discover the wealth-building strategies of professional investors and learn how to pursue your financial goals.  As part of your coursework, you will learn how to develop a personalized plan that addresses your unique concerns and aspirations.  The information presented is factual and objective and no financial products are discussed or sold.  Following the class, you will be entitled to an optional private consultation with your instructor.  “Financial Strategies for Successful Retirement” was developed by the leader in personal financial education, Successful Money Management Seminars, Inc. More than two million people have attended seminars developed by this publisher (now part of Broadridge/Emerald ). Offered throughout the United States and Canada by trained, licensed professionals, FSSR© seminars are recognized for their exceptional content. The courses have been sponsored by over 1,800 corporations, 1,200 organizations and 1,800 educational institutions.  Although Americans work an average of 90,000 hours during their working years, few spend more than a day preparing for their retirement. An increasing number of retiring Americans are dependent upon the government, their families or charity. The FSSR seminar helps you plan to avoid this situation.
