This winter, the Farmington Libraries will host a series of informational financial programs in partnership with Edward Jones. The schedule is as follows:
Social Security: Your Questions Answered
Thursday, December 8, 6:30 PM
Social Security will likely be the foundation of your retirement income. Before you retire, it’s important to understand your options and the effect your decisions have on your retirement. Questions answered will include: How does Social Security fit into my retirement income plan? When should I start taking benefits? What about taxes? Please register.
Roth IRAs: Retirement Can Be Less Taxing
Thursday, January 12, 6:30 PM
Find out about the opportunity to gain tax-free income in retirement. Discussion will include: differences between traditional and Roth IRAs, how a Roth IRA can give you greater flexibility to meet your retirement income needs, and whether converting from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA makes sense for your retirement goals. Please register.
Health Care and Your Retirement
Thursday, March 9, 6:30 PM*
The increasing cost of health care is a growing concern for current and future retirees. In fact, 25 years ago, retirees spent almost twice as much on food as on health care; now the amounts are near equal. Discussion will include: Medicare coverage and traditional medical expenses, long-term medical care expenses, and strategies for addressing uncovered expenses. Please register.
