BEGINNING INVESTING AND

RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS

Where Do You Begin?

Have you ever wanted to start

investing some money but have little

knowledge, time, or money?  Have

you started your own long term

retirement fund?  Nothing is promised

when it comes to retirement pension

funds.  This class provides an un-

derstanding of what to expect when

starting investing.  It also provides

a structure to build your knowledge

gradually as you become familiar

with finance-speak. Students will be

introduced to Roth versus Traditional

IRAs and how to open an investment/

retirement account.  You will be in-

troduced to securities and other prod-

ucts included in the “Market.” Learn

how to read online tools & manipulate

them to gain a historical perspective

on stock performance of companies.

Review industry practices & market

volatility to refrain from making bad

investment decisions. You know more

than you think you do.  If you want to

learn what to expect when investing

and how to evaluate information to

select your own investments for the

long term, this course if for you.  Rob

Saunders will help you connect the

dots on investments and finances. 

Join this lively discussion & bring

your questions to class! Handouts will

be provided.

INTRODUCTION TO ESSENTIAL OILS

Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years

throughout history and are making a comeback! It’s

great to learn how pure, therapeutic grade essential

oils have modern day uses, and are more than just

fragrance. Common essential oils and their practical

uses will be covered. Essential oil testimonials are

an effective way of learning and sharing. With this

knowledge, we can take control of our own personal

health. However, these statements have not been

evaluated by the FDA. Products and techniques men-

tioned are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or

prevent any disease. Information provided in class

is in no way intended to replace proper medical help.

MEDICARE DEMYSTIFICATION

MEDICARE MONEY SAVING TIPS

This class explains the basics of Medicare but more

importantly it answers many common questions

about Medicare as well as questions you would

never know to ask.

A lot of what you learn is not available on the

internet, is difficult to find, or requires a serious time

commitment to acquire. We will be addressing the

following questions and more:

When should I apply for Part B?

What are the penalties for not taking Part B when it

is first available?

What are the benefits of not taking Part B when it is

first available?

What are the penalties for not taking Part D when it

is first available?

I’m losing my group insurance – what should I do?

I have TRS, Tri-Care or VA benefits – is there any-

thing I need to be aware of?

What are the lock-in provisions of Part D plans &

Medicare Advantage Plans?

What are the pros & cons of Medicare Supplements

& Medicare Advantage Plans?

What are the rating methods used to determine the

costs of supplements?

What is Medicare assignment?

What are loss ratios & how will they affect me?

What triggers your “Open Enrollment” period?

When is Medicare my primary coverage and when

is it not?

What are the four different enrollment periods?

The choices you make when you first become

eligible for Medicare will have a huge impact on

your future costs, whether they escalate rapidly or

increase gradually. It will also determine the quality

of care as well as the choice of where you receive

your care tomorrow. This class will be the last

piece of information you will need in order to make

informed decisions about your Medicare options.
