Your Retirement Dream: How Planning Can Make It Come True (MCPL) – VIRTUAL

June 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us for “Your Retirement Dream: How Planning Can Make It Come True” with Harriet Edleson, author and journalist.

Retirement! Have you imagined you’d be lounging on a beach in the south of France or Bethany Beach? Riding a luxury train through the White Towns of Southern Spain? Buying a vacation home in the mountains? Spending more time with the ones you love? Relocating to be near your grandchildren?

Whatever your dream, start planning now. Whether you are already retired or thinking of retiring in the next five or 10 years, planning will make the journey more enjoyable and secure!

Consider your priorities – what do you really want to do? Think about all the resources you have or will have at a time when you may no longer be working. Will you have a pension or will you be relying on Social Security and savings? Whatever your situation, the best way forward is knowledge.

Join us to learn about the basics of retirement planning from budgeting to paying off debt whether it be your mortgage or credit cards that can eat away at your future expendable income. Learn about the optimal time for claiming your Social Security retirement benefits and how to decide whether downsizing is for you. Since housing can be the largest expense in retirement, learn whether staying in place or finding less expensive digs is the path forward. In addition, learn how and why many 65 and beyond are working during the Golden Years!

Harriet Edleson is an expert on baby boomer retirement strategies. She has written the Retiring feature for The New York Times and the Where We Live feature for The Washington Post. A former staff writer/editor/producer for AARP and contributing writer for Kiplinger’s Retirement Report, she began her writing career at Gannett Westchester (NY) Newspapers and the Houston Chronicle.  Her newest book 12 Ways to Retire on Less: Planning an Affordable Future is due to be released May 8, 2021.

This program is free and open to all and is presented by Little Falls Village in partnership with the Little Falls Library of Montgomery County Public Libraries.
