If you’re over age 50 and within 15 years of retirement, our pre-retirement seminars and webinars are a great way to get planning off to a strong start or keep the momentum going. Hosted by Portico and a certified Ernst & Young financial planner, the seminars and webinars answer the important questions you may have about retirement, including:

  • How much money will I need when I retire?
  • What health care options will I have in retirement?
  • As I approach retirement, how can I manage my investment risks?
  • How can money be distributed from my ELCA retirement account to create a steady stream of income in retirement?

Both allow time to answer questions along the way.
