Re: Financial and Retirement Planning - Lump Sums and Tax Planning
Following on from the Financial and Retirement Planning seminars that we ran in 2019 and over the past few weeks, TEAM is sponsoring a deeper dive into financial topics that members told us they wanted to know more about. The first two topics that we’ll be covering are Monthly Pension or Lump Sum?, and Tax Planning and RRSP/TFSA Decisions. These are online sessions, and will be presented by Darryl Robinson.
As a member of TEAM, you, and anyone else you can share a screen with, are welcome to attend. If you wish to attend either (or both) of the below sessions, click the respective links to express your interest. Please note that if the sessions reach capacity, we will schedule additional sessions in July and advise you accordingly.
To participate, you will need a network attached device with a web browser and speakers or headphones*. If you wish to ask questions during the sessions, you can send typed messages using the chat feature, or you can ask verbally via a microphone or a regular phone/cell. A webcam is not required.
*Several members reported that the best audio quality was achieved by dialing in. The call-in number will be provided.
Important Note: TEAM is sponsoring the financial planning seminars to assist members in gaining a better understanding of the financial choices they face when planning for their retirement. The information is being shared for education purposes only, and must not be considered as investment advice. TEAM strongly recommends that members seek independent professional assistant, such as from a fee-for-service Certified Financial Planner, prior to making any significant financial moves, and in particular, where they are contemplating “cashing-out” their defined benefit pension.
