What You Need to Know Before You Retire Series at the Bay Village Senior Center
Retirement is a big decision, and one that takes planning if you are to retire successfully. Finances, Social Security, Medicare and what to do with all that free time are some of the biggest issues you need to think about. These topics and more will be covered in a 5-part series called Retirement 101, presented by the Bay Village Senior Center:
Using Work to Your Advantage – Tuesday, April 17, 7:00 p.m.
This workshop is for those thinking ahead to when they will need to determine their optimal employment situation both prior to and during retirement, along with fallback options to fill gaps in income. Participants may be trying to determine when they can stop working full time.
When to Claim Social Security – Tuesday, April 24, 7:00 p.m.
This workshop is for adults nearing retirement and exploring when to stop working full time and start collecting their Social Security benefits. Younger audience members may be considering an early retirement and wondering how various work and life circumstances will affect the amount of Social Security retirement benefits they will receive and how this decision will affect their retirement paycheck.
