The webinar will include topics such as creating an investment strategy that supports and pivots with your financial plan. Important talking points will include such life-changing decisions as intelligently approaching Social Security, the benefits of adopting a fluid spending plan in retirement, and navigating the complex world of pension options. Key tips for specific, helpful pension choices like lump sum options and survivor benefits will be discussed.

Forrest Bell, CFP®, Senior Investment Advisor and Financial Planner, and Laurent Harrison, CFP®, Investment Advisor and Financial Planner at Bell Investment Advisors, will present this October 23rd webinar. There will be an opportunity for participants to have their questions answered at the end of the presentation.

"This webinar is the second in our series focused on helping Boomers get focused on retirement planning," says Harrison. "In addition to a thoughtful approach to Social Security, we'll cover why it is so critical to choose your pension benefits wisely, as well as discuss the benefits of adjusting your spending from year to year to keep your plan on track. A simple adjustment on spending up or down in retirement based on marked returns can significantly increase your chances of living comfortably in retirement. It's a must for those who are just a year away or even a few years away from retirement and beginning to think about these very important decisions."
