About this Event

Whether you’re just getting started on the road to retirement or racing to the finish line, Portico’s Plan for Retirement Seminar (formerly known as the Pre-Retirement Seminar) can give you a clearer view of the journey ahead. Join us for the morning session, afternoon session, or both – whatever best fits your retirement planning needs.

In the morning, we’ll focus on saving and invest for retirement. This session addresses these important questions, and more:

  • How does retirement fit in with my other financial priorities?
  • How much do I need to save for retirement?
  • How should I invest my retirement savings?

At 12:30 p.m., we’ll break for lunch. We invite all attendees – morning, afternoon, or all day – to join us. This is a great time to connect with other participants.

In the afternoon, we’ll explore ways you can live well and create a sustainable income in retirement. In this session, we’ll address these important questions, and more:

  • How can I distribute income from my ELCA Retirement Plan account?
  • How much can I expect to receive from Social Security?
  • What health care options will be available to me after I retire?
