Next Phase Retirement Income Planning Process

Distributing income in retirement is distinctly different than accumulating wealth while working. People are living longer. They are more active. Key questions about retirement are:

1) Do you have enough money to live in a lifestyle to which you have become accustomed?
2) Do you have enough money to last your lifetime?
3) Do you have your money in the right places?

This course will discuss the challenges that many retirees face in creating an income stream that will last a lifetime. You will better understand why the order of returns in retirement is so important and how a time-segmented strategy can offer you the confidence that comes with a properly designed plan. Learn how to reduce uncertainty regarding the amount and regularity of your retirement income. Explore how to plan a legacy for your heirs or your favorite charities. Instructor: Roger Desai.

Tuition: $69** (includes $40 in fees*)
