Retirement Still Rocks

A rockin’ retirement requires more than a bucket list and it’s never a given. It’s an intention. A rich life is a goal well worth meeting and takes planning that goes beyond but includes the finances. You’ve been busy - advancing your career, paying bills, raising kids and saving for retirement. Over 50% of your waking hours spent traveling to, grooming for, or toiling away at work. 

Let’s fast forward to your first day of retirement. There is nowhere to be; no need to get out of your bathrobe or into the car. That may be nirvana or your worst nightmare, but even nirvana wears thin as a steady diet. Planning for this life phase involves creating a balance between playing, learning, connecting, and contributing with an eye to sustaining your finances. Are you ready?

Retirement Still Rocks! is packed full of useful information on Lifestyle, Relationship and Finances, with a close look at “how much is enough?”  Canadian specific content on pensions, CPP, OAS, taxation and estate planning.

An essential program for those 45 and over looking ahead to their retirement.

4 consecutive Thursday evenings.

Time:  7 PM- 9 PM

Location: cSPACE King Edward

                 1721- 29 Avenue SW

                 Room 310

Dates: October 5, 12, 19, 26
