How do you confidently prepare for and successfully navigate 21st-century retirement? Most of us will have to take far greater responsibility for creating retirement income than our parents’ generation did, as we face increased longevity, market volatility, and rising costs that strain personal portfolios and employer-provided benefits. With more financial data, technology, and investment options than ever before, there are countless decisions to be made in the decades leading up to and through retirement. This course addresses the challenges of retirement planning and retiring in the 21st century. Topics to be addressed include cash flow analysis, saving and investing for retirement, retirement income sources, Social Security strategies, Medicare, insurance and annuities, long-term care, gifting, and estate planning. By the end of this course, you will have created a personal retirement plan that integrates your financial objectives within a framework of your goals and values. This plan will serve as a flexible framework to guide your current and future financial decisions, before and during retirement.
