with Charlie Simineo

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 12, 2022 at 6:30 pm

Are you eligible for Medicare or will be shortly? Are you married to someone who will be? Are your parents approaching that age? How do you sign up for Medicare? Do you need to sign up? What if you don't sign up? What are the penalties if you don't? What if you are covered by another insurance plan? What is covered by each part of Medicare? What is Medicare Part C - I have never heard of that? Why do I need to pick a Medicare Part D plan? What is a prescription drug plan anyway? What is the difference between a Supplemental plan and a Medigap plan? Do I need them both? Why should I have long term care insurance if I have Medicare? Doesn't Medicaid pay for that anyway? This class is designed to provide for a brief overview of these topics and help clear up some myths about insurance when we reach age 65.

1 additional session on Oct 19, 2022

People often pay more in taxes than expected because a confusing system treats various income types differently and contains hidden taxes and penalties.

You need a tax strategy to minimize taxes and maximize your retirement assets and income - this class will help you understand your options in easy to understand language. This class will benefit both retirees and pre-retirees.

1 additional session on Sep 28, 2022

Let's take the mystery out of the crazy and confusing world of Financial Advisors. The term "financial advisor" is impossibly vague and can include stockbrokers, investment managers, wealth managers, insurance agents, and financial planners. Then add in compensation confusion: commissions, sales charges, fee-based and fee-only. Hiding within all these are the really important concepts of "fiduciary" and "best-interest". We will discuss the major types of licensing, registrations and certifications. Bring your questions!

Are you eligible for Medicare, or will be shortly? You probably have the following questions: Will my drugs be covered? Do I need to get drug coverage? How do I sign up? What do you mean there could be a penalty? What if I am covered by another insurance plan? If I am taking no drugs, why do I need to pick a Part D plan? What does picking a Part D plan even mean? How do I do it? Do I need to select a different plan each year? What if I have used the same plan for several years? I hear about Open Enrollment, what does that mean? If you have had any of these questions, this class is for you.

What's the difference between a Medigap policy and Supplemental Medicare policy? What is the best time to buy a Medigap or a Supplemental Medicare policy?

The second hour of the class will be spent on long term care insurance. We will define terms frequently used, the length of time long term care policies pay and how you know what they pay for.
