Retirement Planning

February 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


There are many important decisions to make as you plan for retirement. More than the date to retire will be the financial calculation of resources and consequences of retiring. What are your expenses, do you want to move to another locality and do you want to change your lifestyle? You will need to consider when to take Social Security and what to do with Medicaid. Long term care may be another factor. This workshop can give you the tools to plan for your retirement.
