Workshop Description:

Back by popular demand, Dr. Estes presents a five (5) course webinar series on retirement planning! Learn how to calculate how much you will have, how much you will need, and how to re-balance your portfolio in your 401(k), 457 or 403(b) to safely grow and keep it into retirement. This series takes a very broad topic and reviews it one session at a time so you'll need to attend all five sessions. Class materials include tables, templates, and access to financial software.
