This webinar will discuss one of the most important savings goals of American families: saving money for a comfortable retirement. Specific topics to be covered include research findings about the retirement preparedness of American families, conflicting opinions about “the number” (i.e., amount of money needed to comfortably retire), factors that influence the number, and retirement savings calculation tools such as the Ballpark Estimate and Monte Carlo simulations. Case studies and chat questions will be included to apply the webinar content to real world situations.

In gearing up for America and Military Saves Weeks, Dr. Barbara O'Neill will present this 90-minute webinar on the tools and resources available for calculating the amount individuals and couples need to save for retirement, on behalf of the Military Families Learning Network.
