Planning for Retirement

Planning for Retirement

Everyone looks forward to the “golden years,” when you reached the point where you can enjoy all that life has to offer and not worry about all that comes with reaching that phase of your life. It can be a bit overwhelming, but knowing what resources are available can lessen the stress if you are retired or planning for that next chapter of your life. “Planning for and Making the Most of your Retirement” is the topic of Senior Services of Alexandria’s next Speaker Series on Wednesday, April 10 at the Charles Beatley Central Library at 5005 Duke Street from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

We will have a great group of local experts lined up to answer your questions including Erin Scheithe, project manager – Financial Security for AARP; Nancy Van Gulick, CEO with Seniors Living Well; Tom West, financial advisor with Signature Estate & Investment Advisors, LLC; and Cedar Dvorin, coordinator with the Virginia Insurance Counseling and Assistance Program (VICAP). They’ll be talking about a variety of topics: steps to take to help ensure your long-term financial security; reverse mortgages; what you can really expect from Medicare and Medicaid, important advice about Social Security; downsizing and making your home more accessible.

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Seating is limited so please RSVP online at or call SSA at 703-836-4414, ext 10.
