Checkin’ Your List and Checkin’ it Twice!

Santa has made his list and he’s checkin’ it twice. You’ve surely made your Christmas list as well, but there’s one list that you probably don’t have. A Retirement Plan Checklist. Join Dean Barber and Bud Kasper as they discuss the things you need to stay on top of on your way to and through your retirement.

Retirement Plan Checklist

The Retirement Plan Checklist is designed to allow you to see all the things you need to be thinking of, and doing, as you lead up to and through retirement. It’s a checklist for your retirement journey. This is by no means a replacement for a well thought out and executed financial plan. However, it will get you heading in the right direction.
