Financial planning for those over 50 is very different from that of other age groups. For example:
- Social Security-you must make irrevocable decisions starting at age 62.
- Medicare supplemental insurance-you have choices to make.
- Required Minimum Distribution-calculate correctly or face the highest penalties in the U.S. tax code.
From converting traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs, avoiding excess estate taxes, leaving a legacy gift, to creating a retirement "paycheck," there is much to learn as we age. All of these topics will be covered in this webinar along with significant trends that will affect you:
- Social Security is going completely online. What does that mean for you?
- New retirement income options are popping up. Are you aware of them?
- Baby boomers are working longer and delaying retirement. How does this affect you?
This is perhaps the most critical time for personal finance education in our lives. Register today. In just 90 minutes, you will expand your knowledge on:
- 15 essential financial topics anyone age 50+ needs to understand and address
- The most common financial errors made by older adults
- The required decisions that must be made at "milestone" ages
- How to increase social security benefits by 8% per year
- The health and wealth conundrum-the costs of living longer
Plus, you will receive dozens of personal finance resources that educators and consumers can turn to for additional information and tools such as retirement income calculators.
