Free forum on retirement planning

The State of Connecticut, in conjunction with the Southwestern CT Area Agency will present a free public forum, “The Missing Link in Retirement Planning — Why and When to Consider Long-Term Care Insurance” Oct. 1, at 6 p.m., at Black Rock Church, 3685 Black Rock Turnpike, Fairfield. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The program is open to the general public. No insurance sales will take place.

By attending this forum, attendees will gain a better understanding of the risks and costs of nursing home and home care and why it’s important to consider these long-term care factors in retirement planning; what you need to know before buying long-term care insurance; and the State’s innovative program, the Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care, and how it can add to your long-range financial security.

Those between the ages of 40 and 65 who have (or plan to have) assets of at least $75,000 (excluding car and home) will benefit from this forum.

    Things are changing with States and Munis in deep financial problems.
    Baby Boomers are aging en mass.
    War, drugs, alcohol, rigged markets and other factors devastated many.
    Science, Technology, Medicine, Pharmacology, Nutrition and related fields evolve knowledge and capabilities at geometric progressive rates, while we people think in terms of linear (slower) adaptability.

    There are many jobs today, which didn’t exist 3 or 5 years ago.
    I’m not writing about just creating jobs, but the skills and training didn’t exist!
