RetireU Workshops

We have developed a unique workshop system covering key retirement planning topics. Workshop participants enjoy an educational presentation with professionally produced informational materials. The workshop gives participants an increased awareness of their financial needs from an experienced speaker who has special training and experience in the field of retirement planning.

Our workshops offer:

  • An educational approach to helping individuals recognize financial needs and responsibilities
  • Objective, generic presentations leading to financial awareness
  • Worksheet exercises designed to help assess the need for action
  • Participant interaction promoting involvement
  • Explanation of benefit options

An important feature of our workshop program is its flexibility. The presentation can be extended over almost any length of time. We can put together a simple 45 minute-long presentation or a complete series of workshops. This flexibility allows us to highlight areas of special interest to your employee groups, including benefits or special circumstances for a select group. We have a number of modules that can fit the needs of your employees.
