The United States has an increasingly aging population including baby boomers age 50 to 68 (in 2014). Older adults face unique financial planning challenges. These include making irrevocable decisions about claiming Social Security benefits, selecting Medicare supplement health insurance and long-term care insurance, selecting income-based investments (e.g., annuities), making sustainable retirement asset withdrawals, and calculating required minimum distributions (RMDs) due on tax-deferred savings plans such as traditional IRAs and the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). This 90-minute webinar will “package” together 15 key later life financial planning topics that older adults and the practitioners who serve them need to understand and address. Topics that will be covered in the webinar include:

  • Common financial errors of older adults
  • Statistics about older adult finances
  • Common later life financial characteristics and required decisions
  • 15 key later life financial planning topics (e.g., creating a retirement “paycheck,” required minimum distributions, untitled property transfers, and leaving a legacy)
  • Personal finance resources for older adults and financial practitioners

Participant interaction will include discussing workable financial planning strategies for older adults, older client errors and “blind spots,” older client success stories, and more.
