Most retirement plans are created with one goal: to reach a savings target by the time they reach retirement age. As lifespans continue to increase, retirement could be 20 years or more. No longer is retirement an end but a new, complex stage of life.

Your retirement plan needs to be about more than just reaching retirement—it also has to be about everything that comes next.

Over the years, GW & Wade has helped countless retirees financially prepare for the next chapter in their lives, and in our upcoming webinar, we will outline the non-financial considerations that can impact the quality of your retirement.

What Will You Learn?

GW & Wade’s Women & Wealth Co-Lead, Meg Welborn, JD will be joined by John Diehl, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, Senior Vice President of Applied Insights at Hartford Funds. Drawing on the MIT AgeLab's research on lifespan and longevity trends, John will outline what you should think about when preparing for retirement, including:

  • The four phases of retirement (and how to plan for each)
  • Why bringing your children into the planning process is so important
  • The “longevity paradox”: what it is and why it matters
  • How to adjust to life changes in retirement

We invite you to share the invitation with your friends, family, and colleagues. We hope you can attend this live webinar on Thursday, December 2nd.
