Successful Retirement Strategies Class Description: 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 to provide income throughout retirement.  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 and apply the concepts learned in class. Take action to ensure your financial future is on track by signing up for Successful Retirement Strategies now!
