Getting the Most from Your Medicare Benefits

 

Have you thought about how you will pay for health care in retirement? A 2018 Fidelity study found that a 65-year-old couple retiring that year would need $280,000 to cover health care and medical expenses throughout retirement. Those are just out-of-pocket costs beyond Medicare. On a positive note, people are living longer, healthier lives. It’s not just about what health care costs today, it’s about what health care will cost tomorrow. Therefore, planning for your retirement is more important than ever. Source: Fidelity Retiree Health Care Consulting Estimate, 2018.

Creative Problem Solving

“Who, me? But, I’m not at all creative!” How often do you hear those words? Studies show that most adults use no more than a fraction of their creative potential each day.

The good news is that creativity is a skill that can be learned and developed. A combination of knowledge, imagination and evaluation, creativity flows from the right information, combined with the natural talents of every individual. Through this workshop, you will tap into your unique creative potential and learn how to put creativity to work, especially in the area of problem solving.

The War for Talent: Ways to Arm Your Employees to Overcome Student Debt

There is a student debt crisis unfolding in the United States.  The total amount of outstanding student loan debt has reached an all-time high of $1.41 trillion according to the credit reporting agency Experian, surpassing both credit cards and auto loans.   It may surprise you that it’s not just your young workforce, but many between the ages 45-60 are paying for college and/or taking parent plus loans to help their children.  


Employees need help.  According to a report from the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, four out of five employers report that their employees’ personal financial issues are impacting their job performance.  It’s affecting employees’ ability to pursue other life goals; like home purchases, starting a family, and contributing to their retirement accounts.  Student debt might feel like an individual problem, but on this large a scale, it’s something many businesses have to tackle.
