So... Will I Ever Be Able to Retire? And Other Important Financial Questions That We All Need To Consider - Fall 2016

It's the question that can strike fear into the hearts of Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers alike. Attend an in-depth and informative financial planning seminar that will help you answer the above question, as well as address other important financial considerations NYWIFT members need to keep in mind. This presentation is geared towards members who have been in the work force for over 10 years and are actively saving for their future…. yet aren’t sure where they stand.

Whether you are a business owner expecting to transition out of your practice in the near future, or a member who has been working in entertainment for years, this presentation is for you. Certified Financial Planners Gail Linn and William Fischer at Fortis Lux Financial (an office of MassMutual) will inform you about the key concepts you need to consider when it comes to saving for retirement, protection strategies, business transition, estate planning and more. They will clarify some of the more confusing financial issues we face every day and help you focus your efforts on your goals.

Light Refreshments will be served.
