UW-Marinette offers two sessions on making your money last during your retirement years

MARINETTE, Wis. – Are you ready for retirement? The University of Wisconsin-Marinette’s Office of Continuing Education will be presenting a comprehensive course that guides people during the home stretch to retirement.

Led by John Weninger, president of Wealth Management, this class will chart a course to help your money last the length of your retirement.

Weminger will discuss five action items and the four critical concerns of retirement, which are taxes, inflation, investment portfolio management, and outliving your retirement income.

Then, participants will spend time on the fundamentals of estate conservation and planning strategies.

Each participant will receive a workbook to assist in the development of a retirement plan. Couples may attend together for the same low price of one student.

Classes are Sept. 16, 23, and 30. For convenience there are two sessions offered – Session A from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., located in T-139 in the Fine Arts Building – Session B: held from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., located in M109 of the Main Building.

The cost is $59 and includes all three sessions and a workbook. Couples can attend together for the $59 fee, but will share the workbook.

Extra workbooks can be purchased for $20. This program is open to community members of all ages.
