Sound retirement planning concepts – regardless of income, occupation, or age.
This course introduces you to concepts and strategies that may help you handle your day-to-day finances, potentially reduce your taxes, and manage your investments. What’s more, it will discuss how you can assess your current financial situation and develop a personalized plan that may help you pursue your retirement goals.
Unlike many free, one-to-two-hour workshops that promote specific financial products, Retirement Planning Fundamentals is completely educational. The information you receive is objective and factual, without any references to specific financial products. This course introduces concepts and strategies that may help you make informed financial decisions. However, if you want to discuss specific financial products and services, you may do so during the optional retirement planning consultation.
