                        9:00pm                   Adjourn                       

Personal financial planning is one of the most challenging aspects in today’s economic environment.  The housing market  continues to slump with lingering high unemployment. We don’t save enough while we are living longer.  Social Security is becoming “social un-security” while inflation is slowly diminishing the purchasing power of future retirees, plus expected rising tax rates.  The challenge becomes, how much do I need to save for my retirement years? What are the steps I need to take to secure my financial future? How to leverage today’s low interest rate market and when to refinance my current mortgages?

You are invited to attend this seminar to listen to the two industrial experts from the most reputable financial companies for their best ideas on personal financial planning strategies.  You will learn how to maximize opportunities during our peak working years in today’s economic environment and to lay out sound plans for your retirement years.
