A BOOKENDS UNIVERSITY WORKSHOP
Washington Post columnist Helaine Olen writes that " Mark Miller is just about the smartest writer on the subject of retirement I know, and Retirement Reboot does not disappoint.”
Americans approaching retirement age today have experienced some particularly frightening economic waves. During the Great Recession in 2009 and the COVID-19 pandemic of the early 2020s, older Americans experienced higher rates of job loss than younger ones, and the uncertainty caused by rising inflation rates has led to exceedingly difficult economic circumstances for millions.
My new book on retirement – which will be published in January – is titled Retirement Reboot: Commonsense Financial Strategies for Getting Back on Track. My aim is to take you through a short course of decisions that you can make now to improve your financial security in retirement —even if it’s just a few years away. You’ll learn just how critical it is to make a retirement plan – and the critical importance of timing your retirement. How to optimize Social Security and Medicare benefits. How to build savings – even late in the game. I also explore ways to tap home equity, how older workers should approach career management and financing long-term care needs.
This interactive, online workshop will offer practical strategies for improving your prospects. Topics will include:
- Timing Your Retirement
- Optimizing Social Security
- Navigating Medicare
- Tapping Home Equity
- Building Savings
- Financing long-term care needs
Tuition: $45, which includes a copy of Retirement Reboot: Commonsense Financial Strategies for Getting Back on Track. You can pick up your book at Bookends & Beginnings or have it mailed to you.
