Are you ready for retirement?

One hundred percent of us expect to have a good retirement, but more than half of us don’t know how to save for it. The key is making a plan to save, invest, and protect your assets and understand your benefits. On Tuesday, June 28 at 2:00 p.m., join Diane Childs from the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation, and Kimberly Herrmann from the Social Security Administration for a non-biased discussion on earning, investing and maximizing your nest egg. They will go over basic savings and investing, choosing a financial planner, protecting your assets from fraud, and understanding your Social Security benefits.
