GRAND BLANC — With headlines, Twitter and talk shows abuzz, President Donald Trump has had nothing if not an eventful first year in office. Yet, with new tax laws, uncertainty in global markets and a news cycle that never ends, the constant chatter is enough to set any retiree’s teeth on edge.
No matter what side of the aisle they’re on, many who are in or near retirement are wondering:
How will the new tax laws affect me?
How might global economic forces affect my retirement assets?
What if the bull market becomes a bear?
And, most importantly, do I have enough set aside to cope with market uncertainties?
To help answer these questions, Rick Barnett, president and advisor at Barnett Financial & Tax, a firm that focuses on helping people prepare their finances for retirement, will host “Maximizing Retirement in a Trump Economy: A Different Approach to Securing Your Financial Future” from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 18 at Genesys Conference Center.
“No matter your politics, we’re living in an unprecedented time,” said Barnett. “But retirement is the time that we like financial surprises the least — for good reason. Hopefully, people can come to this event and walk away with better confidence in how to protect themselves and even take advantage of the various economic situations that may arise in the next few years.”
