Don’t Worry, Retire Happy

A Classroom Course, teaching the essentials of Retirement Planning

Among your most critical financial planning decisions is the decision on how to generate income from your retirement portfolio. That income needs to last you a lifetime, yet surveys show that many people struggle with the difficult task of generating lifetime retirement income. Many retirees just withdraw what they need from their retirement savings without considering the impact this might have on ensuring their portfolio will last as long as they live.

This course is designed to help you understand the elements necessary in creating a retirement income plan by going through 7 simple steps. Each step is designed to educate you on perceived and real retirement risks, the options you have for addressing your retirement income needs and potential solutions in the form of case studies. .

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is getting close to retirement and currently doesn’t have a plan for generating retirement income that is a year-by-year plan showing where retirement income will come from will benefit from attending. This course will give you a perspective on your financial obligations so that you can put a financial spending plan in place prior to retirement and modify it according to your own personal risk tolerance, need for income, size of your retirement fund and legacy goals you may have to pass on retirement assets to your family.

Why You Should Attend

Retirement income plans need to be made based on income needs, as well as the amount of savings a person has set aside for retirement. If running out of retirement income is a real concern for you, this course will show you how to set up a method of generating retirement income that is likely to make your savings last for your lifetime and, if you’re married, for your spouse’s lifetime as well.
