Strategies for a Sustainable Income in Retirement

There are several factors that contribute to a successful retirement, but knowing you have a plan to prevent you from running out of money is at the top of the list.  In this workshop we’ll show you how to create a written plan all based on your hopes and dreams until you turn 100 years old, which takes into account your income streams, longevity, inflation, and rising medical and Long-Term Care costs. Additionally, there is no need to have your assets subjected to the volatility in the market – learn a strategy that can give you confidence that you will be protected from risk.  This workshop is perfect for those already retired, and those within 5-10 years of retirement.
