Retirement Planning During a Pandemic

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 - 6:00pm
Event location: 
ONLINE

The coronavirus pandemic and its related economic consequences have made critical changes to the way we think about retirement in America. What are the key questions about housing, healthcare, business, and the supply chain that you should be asking yourself as we work our way through this crisis?

In this 45 minute webinar with the Society of Financial Awareness (SOFA),  you’ll learn the new questions you should be asking in light of the global pandemic, including:

How much money will I need? What sources do I have, and are they enough?

How much of my retirement income is guaranteed? Why is this important given the market volatility that has happened and is likely to continue for some time?

What strategies are best for me now? 

No prior knowledge is required! The goal of this webinar is to give you an idea of how to develop a game plan and inform you of the things you can do to improve your likelihood of success in retirement. You’ll learn about how to manage inflation, the amount of guaranteed vs. variable income you are receiving, and other factors that are related to your longevity and long term care. 

This event is FREE.  Registration is required at  retirewvpl.eventbrite.com to receive the Zoom link.

ONLINE: When Women Lost the Vote

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
ONLINE

When Women Lost the Vote
Presented by the Museum of the American Revolution

When Women Lost the Vote program is a hybrid online experience: a lecture, a short virtual tour of the museum's newest exhibition of the same name, and brief Q&A.

Millions of American women were granted the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which marks its centennial in 2020. But more than a century earlier, women and free people of color legally held the vote in New Jersey for more than thirty years.

The Museum of the American Revolution will explore the little-known history of the nation’s first women voters and examine the political conflicts that led to their voting rights being stripped away.

Don't miss it!  This program is FREE and open to the public.  Registration is required at when-women-lost-the-vote.eventbrite.com to receive the Zoom link to attend.
