Educational workshops on investing, retirement planning and estate planning topics

Social security is one of the few life-long sources of income in retirement.  It can also provide spousal benefits, divorcee benefits and survivor benefits.  Yet few people take the time to understand how they can maximize their social security benefit either for themselves or for the ones they love.  This workshop provides an in depth discussion about how social security works, different ways to claim, when to claim, the taxation of benefits, spousal, divorcee and survivor benefits and how to incorporate social security into your overall retirement planning.

When we think of retirement, we like to focus on the fun years when we are active and healthy.  However retirement is a chapter of life that can last 20 or more years.  During this time, we age and many of us will end up needing care.  Waiting until we need care to understand and address the challenges that can arise can take a financial and emotional toll on you and your family.  This workshop helps attendees understand what kinds of care we may need as we age, the relative costs, what Medicare covers and what it doesn't, the spend down rules in Connecticut and ways to protect independence, assets and loved ones.  We also touch upon some estate planning strategies.
