Presentation on the basics of planning for retirement

ISHPEMING, Mich. (WLUC) - Are you getting ready to retire? If so, there are a few questions you need to answer first. Do you have enough money to retire and live comfortably? Do you know when to start collecting social security? If you are unsure about anything when it comes to your retirement, you should speak with a financial advisor. The Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Chamber of Commerce held a resource meeting with expert presenters from Thrivent Financial to help teach the basics of planning for retirement.

“You want to start thinking about retirement because you don't want to wait until it's too late and then you have to extend working past when you don't want to,” said Brett Branstrom, a financial representative for Thrivent Financial. “It's always better to plan early.”
