The COVID-19 pandemic is causing many Iowans to rethink when they will retire, whether sooner or later than they originally had planned. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is delivering educational online workshops that address both scenarios.

Writing Your Retirement Paycheck

Iowans who anticipate retirement within the next 10 years should consider Writing Your Retirement Paycheck. This two-part online workshop outlines key factors to consider prior to retirement and describes strategies for planning your retirement income.
“Our workshop offers practical, research-based and non-commercial information to help you make the most of your money in retirement and be financially secure,” Wollan said.
