Financial Planning Class Geared Toward Women
The Department of Continuing Education at Sandhills Community College is offering a course that is uniquely designed for women who are retired or soon to be retired.
The class, titled “Financial Decision Making for Women,” begins at 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 1, in room 202 of Van Dusen Hall. The instructor is Noelle Granville, a certified senior adviser with Granville Financial Planning in Pinehurst.
The class will meet on Tuesday afternoons for five sessions from 3 to 5 p.m. through March 29.
In addition to learning investment jargon and exploring techniques of financial planning and selecting investments, Granville will emphasize several areas that are especially critical to women during retirement years: preservation of capital, maintaining adequate liquidity, income generation, estate planning techniques, reducing income taxes, long-term care planning, burial planning and how to deal with financial professionals.
Participants will be introduced to special features of N.C. income tax laws as well as estate and probate laws. Guest speakers will include an estate attorney and a certified public accountant.
The registration fee for this course (No. 1057) is $45 but is free for those 65 and over. Interested persons can register by calling Sandhills at (910) 695-3980. Registration will continue through the first class.
