Writing Your Retirement Paycheck Workshop Offered in Charles City

Charles City, IA – A class is going to be offered at the ISU Extension and Outreach Office in Charles City on March 12 and 19. This course is going to teach attendees about financial status as they approach retirement.

“Writing Your Retirement Paycheck” is designed to provide information needed by those approaching retirement within the next ten years. The workshop outlines key factors to consider prior to retirement and describes two strategies for structuring your retirement income.

Brenda Schmitt will lead the workshop. The topics include inflation, health costs, Social Security, required minimum distributions, annuities and more.

Schmitt points out that even those who work with a trusted financial professional must ultimately make the decisions themselves. A financial professional can suggest or recommend products and strategies, but it is the consumer who decides and then lives with the results of the decisions.

A fee of $15 for the “Writing Your Retirement Paycheck” workshop will help to off-set direct expenses and to support the Human Sciences County Extension Program.  Register by contacting ISU Extension and Outreach, Floyd County at (641) 228-1453 or email:
