Retirement Planning

Retirees often continue to use a pre-retirement financial plan – such as asset accumulation – and find that it no longer fits their fiscal needs. However, alternatives such as distribution planning can be more complicated and retirees may struggle to understand the particulars, or feel unsure as to whom they can trust.

The College of Charleston partners with reputable financial institutions to blend education with life planning. Our highly qualified instructors will help you to align your finances with your values and make informed decisions about investments and retirement plans.
