Business Brown Bag Lunch: Financial Planning for Retirement May 19, 2015,12:00 noon until 1pm

Learn how to estimate your monetary retirement needs and then answer these two questions: Do I have enough money to retire? And…Will my money last me a lifetime? We will cover various sources of retirement income and how to maximize them. Social Security, personal savings, employee benefits and more. Additionally, we will touch on cash balance plans and ideas that you might be able to use to defer additional money to your retirement pool and save on taxes. Then tax implications of these various income streams will be discussed, when to start drawing on them and how to incorporate all these decisions into a comprehensive plan.
