5 Steps to a Successful Retirement: Wednesday, April 11 in Camas

SPECIAL ALERT:  "WOMEN & RETIREMENT" WORKSHOP from Julia Anderson

Sixtyandsingle.com readers in the Portland-Vancouver metro area are invited to attend a FREE Women & Retirement workshop hosted by the Camas Public Library on Wednesday, April 11 starting a 7 p.m. I will be presenting my 5 Steps to a Successful Retirement workshop. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions and answers during the 90-minute session.
My five steps to retirement:
No. 1  Know the facts about women and retirement. Will you be on your own?
No. 2  Plan for the long-term. Who can you trust to help with financial planning?
No. 3  Look at the big picture. Where will your retirement income come from?
No. 4  Make a retirement budget. What will change when you retire?
No. 5  Bridge the gap. What will it take to get your living expenses in line with your retirement income? Does it have to be all or nothing?

There will be plenty of hand-outs including the Social Security Administration pamphlet "What Every Women Should Know."
Please call and SIGN UP for this FREE Workshop.

EVENT:
5 Steps to a Successful Retirement from Julia Anderson, founder of sixtyandsingle.com.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 11 beginning at 7 p.m.
WHERE: Camas Public Library, 625 N.E. Fourth Avenue, downtown Camas.
TO REGISTER: Call 360-834-4692, press ext. 1.


Hosting these workshops is very rewarding for me as part of my ongoing mission to help women plan and save for retirement. Whether or not you use a financial adviser, I believe that you need to have confidence about investing and managing your money. The mistakes are yours, the gains are yours!
What will I be covering?
How much money will you need in retirement? Where will that money come from? How much will I collect in Social Security benefits? How do I make a retirement budget? Will I need to join a commune to keep a roof over my head?
My 5 Steps to Retirement will give you answers to many of these questions or at least show  you how to make a plan. But, of course, if you're really serious about retirement that planning should start well before you're 50. This message is for our daughters, too!
And MEN are welcome at this event as well.
According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau information there are more than 40 million Americans already 65 and older with 10,000 more turning 65 every day. That total is up 15 percent in the past 10 years.
There are nearly 5.5 million people 85 and older in this country. That number is up nearly 30 percent in the past 10 years. Many of those 80-year-olds will be women living on their own.
Cheers,
Julia
