The Couple's Retirement Puzzle: Helping Couples Navigate Their Retirement Transition: Challenges and Opportunities - Dorian Mintzer

In the 21st Century, the landscape of retirement is changing.

People are living longer and retirement is no longer thought of as a destination, but as a transition: with an ending, a period of unknowns and a new beginning.

It's important for people to think about what they are retiring TO rather than just what they're retiring FROM. It's hard enough for an individual to deal with these retirement transition years, and can be even more complicated for couples who may have differing ages, energy levels, priorities, values, goals and dreams. It may also feel like a challenge for the adviser to work with a couple as the client.

Using the framework of "The Couple's Retirement Puzzle", this webinar will help advisers  understand some of the important conversations couples need to have, to develop tools to help couples better communicate with each other and to develop a vision for the years ahead, and to understand some of the challenges and rewards in helping couples have these important conversations. 

In “The Couple's Retirment Puzzle" by Dorian Mintzer you will:

  1. Learn about the changing landscape of retirement;
  2. Gain a better understanding of the changing demographics of couples;
  3. Recognize some must-have conversations;
  4. Develop some tools to help clients communicate more effectively with you and with each other;
  5. Learn how to help clients develop a vision for the years ahead;
  6. Understand some of the challenges and rewards of helping couples have important conversations.
