Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Day

Live web chat allows you to ask NAPFA financial advisors any question you have about retirement.

Make a retirement plan to reach your goals

Planning for retirement is essential if you want to reach your goals and avoid working through your golden years. Unfortunately, if you’re like many Americans, you may not be preparing as much as you should – and that lack of proper planning may be rooted in the fact that you simply don’t know where to start.

That’s why we’re excited about a one-day live web chat from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). It’s called Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Day and it’s the perfect opportunity to have your all questions answered so you can start making a real plan to reach your goals.

The event will be held online one week from today on Thursday, September 25, 2014, from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM (EST). You can watch the online chat as it happens at Live.Kiplinger.com. If you have a question, you can join in that day or submit it in advance via Twitter with the hashtag #JumpStart to ensure you get the answers you need. You can even use the “Live” link above right now to sign up for an email reminder of the chat next Thursday.

Topics will include:

  • Retirement savings options: 401(k)s, IRAs, Roth IRAs and more
  • Income in retirement: From Social Security to income investing strategies
  • Taxes & retirement:Gift taxes, estate taxes, wills and other concerns
  • Retirement challenges: From saving for college to paying down debt

“It’s easy to be intimidated by retirement planning – especially if you’re just starting out,” says Gary Herman, President of Consolidated Credit, “but this live chat gives you the platform you need to get your questions answered so you can plan effectively.”
