June 2019 Financial Workshop: Retire Wisely – Designing a Lifetime Income

Financial Workshop: Retire Wisely – Designing a Lifetime Income


A deeper dive workshop on financial literacy in midlife (40+ years) and beyond.


Following up on our June Forum, Financial Literacy – How to Make Good Financial Decisions, our facilitator Skip Nelson will be providing a hands on workshop designed to help you retire wisely.  He’ll tackle common concerns of both those in pre-retirement as well as people fully retired by addressing the following elements that impact your financial health:

  •  401k’s in retirement
  •  Market volatility/Inflation
  •  Reducing risk
  • Tax effects
  • Protecting what you have earned

At the end of the evening, you will leave with a deeper understanding of how to  personally evaluate your own financial health and map out a plan that will impact your retirement dreams  – please note, this is an educational-based event and not a sales presentation.
