The AAII Los Angeles Chapter presents...

"Strategies for Pursuing Your Retirement Paycheck"

    Discussed by:

    Christine Benz
    Director of Personal Finance, Morningstar

Morningstar’s director of personal finance will discuss how the retirement and pension landscape has changed in the last 30 years. In 1980, 40% of workers were covered by traditional pensions. Today, that number is 20% or less. This means that if you ever hope to retire, you are going to have to do things differently. You cannot rely on bonds or three-month certificates of deposit. Rates on CDs have fallen from 12.6% in 1980 to 0.6% today. But what should you do? Come hear a premier personal financial advisor share her advice. Then stick around while she takes your questions for the final hour of the meeting. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Christine Benz. For more information on Morningstar visit
