Retirement funds workshop available

An Iowa State University Extension and Outreach workshop on ensuring retirement funds last has been scheduled for Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the ISU Extension and Outreach office in Henry County, 127 Main St., Mt. Pleasant.

Writing Your Retirement Paycheck is designed to provide information needed by those approaching retirement within the next 10 years. The workshop outlines key factors to consider before retirement and describes two strategies for structuring your retirement income.

?For most of us,? says Mary M. Weinand, Human Sciences Specialist in family finance, ?our paychecks have been determined by someone else all our lives. But in retirement, many of us are responsible to write our own paychecks.?

There is a fee for this program which will help to offset direct expenses and to support the Human Sciences County Extension Program. Registration is easy at For more information or questions, contact Mary Weinand at
