Council to Host Inaugural Retirement Seminar Series

28 April 2014

Council’s Bayside Business Network (BBN) is delivering a three part retirement seminar series titled ‘Bayside Retire Smart’ featuring a range of highly qualified independent speakers who will address important topics relevant to those who want to achieve a secure and comfortable retirement.

Topics to be covered over the series include the essentials of estate planning, self managed superannuation, understanding Centrelink entitlements, wise investment strategies, aged care options and borrowing against equity.

The seminar series has been planned in response to recent statistics indicating that 40% of the City of Bayside’s population is over 50, and that many of these residents are currently planning for or considering, retirement in the near future.

Bayside Mayor Cr Laurence Evans is encouraging as many Bayside residents as possible to register to attend this retirement seminar series.

“Council is committed to ensuring that community members are well informed as they prepare for retirement and that they have the resources and the knowledge to achieve a sustainable and healthy retirement,” he said.

“In order to provide seminar participants with the most up to date and relevant information, this series will feature qualified speakers who will cover a very broad agenda of topics.  Of particular importance, our seminar speakers have no vested interested in selling a product or service and are specialists in their field.”

The first seminar series will be held at the Sandringham Yacht Club between 6pm and 8pm on Tuesday 20 May.

The second seminar session will be held on Tuesday 27 May and the third on Tuesday 24 June, 2014.

A price of $110 per person will apply to attend all three seminar sessions, $160 will be charged per couple and Pensioner Concession Card holders will be charged $55.  Members of the Bayside Business Network are invited to attend free of charge.

Light refreshments will be served.
