Many studies and surveys indicate that more than half of Americans have less than $10,000 saved for retirement. Alarmingly, one in three have saved nothing. This class will reveal the truths and techniques will prepare you for what’s ahead so that you can retire successfully.
Please join your fellow alumni and friends of McCombs for an engaging and informative workshop to help you plan for the future. Daniel Caswell, CPA, BBA Class of 1984, will offer just the right amount of education and information to anyone interested in learning more about the retirement planning process and investment management with some tools and strategies you can apply to your own plan now that will really make a difference.
The workshop topics we will be working on include:
• The six major threats to your retirement.
• How much money you will need in retirement.
• How the inevitable rising tax rates will affect your retirement - the new tax law does not address this...
• How to arrange your accounts to maximize your retirement cash flow and how to secure your income.
• How and when to best use a Roth Conversion.
• How to get the most from Social Security - it’s more than just timing.
• How to protect your retirement from market losses.
• The importance of proper estate planning and how to lessen the burden on your family
