Retirement workshop planned
JOHNSTOWN — The Johnstown Public Library will be hosting an educational workshop in conjunction with Retirement Solutions, titled “Planning Your Social Security Retirement Strategy,” for pre-retirees age 55 and older at 6 p.m. on May 3.
Today’s baby boomers can expect to spend more time in retirement compared to previous generations. As a result, the timing of when to claim one’s Social Security benefits is no longer a simple decision. For many retirees and their spouses, taking the time to properly evaluate this important financial decision can be a major step toward a more comfortable retirement.
The program seeks to explore retirement from a time perspective as well as the impact of longevity in order to help attendees make a more informed decision before choosing when to claim their Social Security benefits. Topics covered include recent changes in legislation, why Social Security is crucial to women, avoiding frequent claiming mistakes and the best way to maximize benefits.
The workshop is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.
Light refreshments will be served and seating is limited.
Reservations can be made online at www.retirementsolutionsllc.com or call the library at (518) 762-8317.
