The Scotts Valley Chamber of Commerce is pleased to host the Fifth Scotts Valley Financial Planning Clinic for our Community. This FREE, Pro Bono event offers the public an opportunity to address specific financial questions and concerns with our local professional financial planners. These professionals are volunteering their time and expertise to meet one-on-one with our community members and provide you ideas on “A Keeping Of Your Green!” this St. Patricks Day weekend.
This clinic provides our local community with financial information they may not have taken the time to ask about. Do you have questions regarding Debt Management, Cash Flow, when to take Social Security, funding your Retirement or a College Fund? Perhaps you are experiencing a special circumstance that has affected your finances, such as Job Loss, Job Change, Underwater Mortgage or have had a Change in Marital Status. These are just a few of the areas that attendees can discuss with our professionals. Attending this event may be the first opportunity you have had to meet face-to-face with a professional financial planner. And it’s Free.
From 2:00 – 3:00 pm we will present two Seminars that will address issues you may be wondering about.
2:00 pm – Retirement Planning Basics
Speaker: Stephen Hoversten – Modern Woodman Fraternal Financial
Nobody plans to fail, they fail to plan. Reaching your retirement goals takes more than wishful thinking. Developing and following a plan will allow you to achieve your goals over time. This seminar will discuss the most important strategies to include in your plan.
2:30 pm – Retirement Income Strategies
Speaker: Ted George, CFP®, MSFP – George Financial Advisors
Building a retirement nestegg is very important. Of equal importance is a plan that provides enough income to support your lifestyle. In this seminar we will focus on options and strategies for income that help keep your finances in order throughout your retirement.
3:00 – 6:00 pm – Each attendee will then be able to meet individually with one of our professional financial planners for 20 – 30 minutes.
Individual sessions are being offered between 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm following the 60 minute Educational Seminar and are scheduled on a first-come first served basis, so be sure to register when you arrive for the Seminar at 2:00 pm.
