McMaster University has partnered with the Credit Counselling Society (CCS) to offer a 3-part online retirement planning course aimed at helping pre-retirement employees obtain and maintain financial stability in their upcoming retirement.
Participants must be available to participate in ALL THREE of the 2-hour sessions:
November 24, 2020 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.; AND
December 1, 2020 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.; AND
December 8, 2020 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
By the end of the three sessions, participants will gain:
an understanding of their income, debt, and budget before and during retirement;

Topics such as states of retirement, retiring without debt, sources of retirement income, investment basics, strategies to navigate taxes, estate planning, insurance, and resources will be discussed. This is a real-time, online, interactive course. All three sessions are required to complete the course. A link to the course, along with further details will be provided prior to the first session in the series.
