If you could change the way you think about retirement…
The University of Texas at Austin is offering you the opportunity to assess your current retirement planning. There is no time like the present to protect your future. Come to the MetLife Retirewise seminars and learn how to make the most of what you have to build the retirement you want. Topics include:
- Protecting your retirement savings and investments
- Having enough money to last as long as you live
- Planning for health care and other costs
This complimentary retirement education program can help you feel more confident that your choices are the right ones for you and your situation.
The Retirewise seminars include:
You will envision the retirement you want and how you will finance it based on current and future retirement trends. We will cover some financial basics and budgeting for retirement. You will start to see how what you already have will contribute to the retirement you want.
You will begin to look at how to prepare before retirement to generate income during retirement. You will look at investment risk, investment strategies, retirement expenses and several sources of retirement income.
Building on what you have learned so far, you will learn how to structure a retirement income stream to address
your retirement wants and needs. We will examine the risks that could impact your retirement funds, how to manage assets to help provide lifelong income and what government programs cover and what they do not cover.
You will review the benefits your employer offers, together with other benefits for a clear understanding of how they fit into your retirement plan. We will look at the basics of estate planning, wills and trusts. And a film made exclusively for Retirewise by best-selling author and coach Richard Leider will help you reconsider what a satisfying and meaningful retirement looks like for you.
