Financial Concerns for Seniors

Addressing Financial Concerns for Seniors

The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (www.cfee.org) together with the Saskatoon Council on Aging (SCOA) will host a virtual workshop designed to help seniors develop a better understanding of financial issues relevant and important to them.

Our goal for the workshop is to help participants:

• learn how to set and reach financial goals
• adapt, plan for and manage retirement from a financial perspective
• recognize various expenses and plan a practical budget
• how to continue saving in retirement
• plan and start a second career
• cope with the loss of a partner or spouse
• make estate arrangements

The workshop will also address the financial challenges of living in a COVID-19 pandemic.

This workshop will be presented by Kevin Maynard, Vice-President of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and hosted on the Zoom videoconferencing platform.

No cost.

A distant elevator can also infuse the work with a nostalgic feeling of hometown Saskatchewan. Join Cecilia on Memory Lane and looking back to our roots. 8”x10” canvas. All materials included
