Alexandria, MN – Only 22% of U.S. workers are confident they’ll have enough saved for their retirement. Despite this lack of confidence and savings, 45% of Americans have no retirement savings whatsoever, including 40% of baby boomers. The Americans who are saving, are saving just 4% of their income, on average.
A free educational seminar, “Retire Wisely with Retirement Strategies” will teach individuals how to manage six risks all retirees face to help maximize retirement savings. The community is invited to attend the seminar, which begins at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 27. Thrivent Financial representative Ted Haar will explore this topic in depth. This free seminar will be held at Grand Arbor, 4403 Pioneer Road SE, Alexandria.
This is the third seminar in an ongoing series hosted by Thrivent Financial and Knute Nelson. Upcoming seminar topics include:
• Tuesday, October 11 – Heart to Heart: As Your Parents Age
• Tuesday, December 6 – Keeping the Farm in the Family
