Endowment Luncheon

March 31, 2019

12:00PM in Fellowship Hall

Many people reach retirement age having received much more information about accumulating money in 401(k), IRA, 403(b) accounts, etc. than they have received about how to handle those funds once they retire. The Endowment Committee is planning a luncheon session for March 31, after the 11:00 service to discuss this topic.

This session will cover the financial risks associated with retirement and strategies to deal with those risks. We will look at several of the widely-recommended spending guidelines and annuities. This session is not about investment advice or avoiding a financial planner nor is this session only for those already retired or close to retirement age. We hope it will provide information to allow you to ask better questions of the professionals in these areas or to better set your targets for retirement age and/or accumulated savings.

Contact the Bethany Endowment Committee with questions or to register.
