DECLARE YOUR INDEPENDENCE: TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR DOLLARS
The most important thing you can to do with your money is to give it a plan. After all, if you don't tell your money where to go, you'll always be asking where it went. Whether you call it a budget, a spending plan or a money map, having a plan for how you spend money will allow you to declare your independence and set you free to actually enjoy it!
This workshop will teach you how to identify where your money goes, track personal spending, find everyday ways to save and develop a personal plan that will allow you to take control of your dollars.
RETIREMENT SECURITY: PROVIDING FOR YOUR GOLDEN YEARS
Whether you are years from retirement or currently navigating benefits in retirement, this event can prepare you for those golden years. Statistically speaking, many people underestimate how much money they will need for retirement. You may need to fund your lifestyle in retirement for 20 years or more, and Social Security only provides an estimated 40% of pre-retirement income for the average worker. You need a plan! Get great information on Social Security, estate planning, retirement funding, reverse mortgages and more. Meet individually with Certified Financial Planners, Medicare counselors, Estate Attorneys and more--all for free no strings attached. Our presentations, one-on-one advice and free resources will help you live well for as long as you live.
