Financial Decision Making Class Offered for Retirees
What are the best interest rates available for investments? How can one reduce probate costs and estate taxation? How can one best prepare for long-term care?
These and many other questions will be answered in a Sandhills Community College course especially for retirees and pre-retirees titled Financial Decision Making for Retirees. This continuing education course will cover investments, estate planning, long-term care planning and income tax deduction.
The instructor, Noelle Granville, is a certified senior adviser with Granville Financial.
"With interest rates near all-time lows, the housing market still in the doldrums and the presidential election coming up, retirees need to be better educated to cover a multitude of risks with finances," Granville said.
The course will feature guest speakers, including a certified public accountant and an estate attorney.
The class will run for five weeks from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays starting Sept. 13 and ending Oct. 11. It will be held in room 202 in Van Dusen Hall on the Sandhills campus.
To preregister, call (910) 695-3980. The cost is $35 but is free to students 65 and older.
Registration will continue through the first session.
