Pierce County hosts retirement planning workshop

A down economy, rising health care costs and a tenuous job market make many working people wonder if retirement will ever be in their future. Pierce County’s “Smart Retirement Made Simple” will help working adults understand how to prepare for retirement before it’s too late as well as how to prepare in the later years of one’s working life. The presentation will deal with what retirement looks like, working after retirement, barriers to retirement and making end-of-career corrections. Learn what life will look like for the new generation of retirees.

“Smart Retirement Made Simple” will be presented at three different locations: (a.) July 18 — Pierce County Annex Main Conference Room, 2401 35th St., Tacoma; 12:10-12:50 p.m. (b.)
