For many, the workplace retirement plan represents a good portion of their retirement savings. This in-depth seminar will help attendees understand the pros and cons of available distribution options and potential tax implications and penalties.
|Estate Planning |
When we talk about estate planning, we often run into this kind of thinking. Think estate planning is only for the rich? Or for married couples or for older people? Not so. An “estate” is just a fancy word for the stuff that you own. What’s important to consider is ….what do you want to do with it? And how do you want to protect those you leave behind?
