The election is over – what now? For many, regardless of age, it’s a time for making new evaluations and choices concerning insurance, medical, financial, downsizing and tax issues. “Navigating the Options in Uncertain Times”, a workshop presentation and panel discussion with several members of the Alliance of Business Professionals will be held at the New Canaan Library Gallery on Tuesday, November 27 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. The public is invited and reservations are not necessary.
Panelists include Don Moyle of Insurance Navigation, health insurance for business and individuals; John Murphy of The Boudreau Murphy Group, Morgan Stanley, financial advisor and portfolio manager; Cynthia Herbert, Appretium Appraisal Services, fine and decorative arts and antiques; Carol Hollyday, a top producing Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty and John Nelson of Nelson & Koeppen LLC, tax planning and accounting. The discussion will be moderated by Bill Bergner of State Farm Insurance, New Canaan.
Among the critical issues to be raised:
How do you distinguish between over 100 Medicare plan options in Connecticut?
How will potential new legislation affect your investment strategy?
Why your antiques may not be worth as much as you thought.
When does it make sense to downsize?
How do you keep monthly expenses under control when living on a fixed income?
Without using real names, the panelists will discuss actual case studies representing scenarios confronting people of various ages and different stages in life, the issues facing them and the options available. There will be an opportunity for audience questions.
