From page B4 | April 09, 2014 |

Looking forward to the day you can hang up the work clothes, take down the shingle and say goodbye to the business world?

Join the El Dorado County Commission on Aging for an interactive and informative retirement planning workshop, “Planning for a Lifetime” at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 12, at the El Dorado County Library in Placerville, 345 Fair Lane.

It’s not going to be your parents’ retirement — rewarded at 65 with a gold watch, a guaranteed pension and health insurance for life.

The retirement scene is changing. For many, retiring in this new century is a mystery where workers will need to rely on their own work-related and personal savings plus Social Security benefits.

These savings have to last longer because people are living longer, often into their 80s and 90s. But never fear — the information provided during the workshop will help you discover changes you can make for a financially secure future.

The retirement planning workshop will offer tips on how to take control of your finances so that when you retire, you have the time and money to do what you’ve always wanted. It will introduce you to resources and worksheets to chart different parts of your financial life to help project future costs and savings well into your retirement years. A special segment of this workshop will concentrate on the specific concerns women nearing retirement often face.

Presenter Vicki Ludwig, a former educator, is a member of the Commission on Aging. She is a volunteer and not affiliated with any financial company. This workshop embodies the collaboration of the El Dorado County Library in Placerville, the EDC Commission on Aging, and Money Smart Week — a public awareness campaign designed to help the community better manage their personal finances.

Pre-register and be assured a spot at this workshop. Laptops and tablets are welcome; however, power outlets are limited.

For more information on this free event or to reserve a seat call the library at 530-621-5540.
