11:30am – 12:45pm | Emeriti Retiree Health Care Program: What is it and how you can make it work for you
It’s important to plan for retirement healthcare expenses early, so you can approach retirement with confidence. Planning for healthcare costs in retirement should be part of your health and wealth strategy—one that helps you pursue a sense of financial well-being and lets you know it’s OK to retire.

Learn about wills, powers of attorney, living wills and heath care proxies. Come prepared with your questions!

Mid-Stage Planning

11:30am – 12:45pm | Money at Work 2: Sharpening your investment skills
Knowledge is the best investment. Feel more secure in your savings strategy by verifying you’re on the right track. And if you’re off track, know what adjustments you need to make. Are you saving enough? Have you taken taxes into account? Do you have a financial plan—and have you thought about what retirement looks like?

1pm – 2:15pm | Halfway There: A retirement checkup
Help make sure your retirement is ready when you are. Halfway? Al-ready? Retirement has a way of creeping up on people. Before you know it, you’ll be depending on all the money you saved and invested. But there’s still time. It may be time to give your retirement savings a checkup. TIAA’s workshop leader will provide information to help you determine where you need to be in your retirement savings, and how to get back on track if you’re behind.

Advanced-Stage Planning

10am – 11:15am - Medicare Basics

11:30am – 12:45pm | Medicare & Social Security: When am I eligible and what are my options?
No appointment needed – no wait time! At this workshop you will hear what you need to know about Medicare and Social Security. There will be ample time to ask questions of the representative from the Center for Medicare Services.

1pm – 2:15pm | Paying Yourself: Income options in retirement
It’s time to consider a little payback. You’ve made a lot of sacrifices in order to put away enough money to retire. When it’s finally time, do you know how to get the money back? There are lots of considerations, rules and tax implications that make these decisions very important and more complex. Relax. TIAA can help.
