MILWAUKEE, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This Tax Day, Northwestern Mutual is encouraging Americans to shift their thinking on taxes to achieve a comfortable life in retirement. Taxes can take a big bite out of a retirement savings account, so where people put their money can be just as important as how much they are saving. On Wednesday, April 22 at 1 p.m. EST Northwestern Mutual is hosting a free, 30-minute webcast, "Pay Taxes Now or Later: Retirement Strategies Beyond a 401(k)" including a live Q&A which will give attendees actionable takeaways to help maximize their retirement dollars.
Webcast participants will learn:
- Actions to take today to maximize their income later
- Their retirement saving options
- Ways to minimize taxes in retirement
The webcast's featured experts will be Wealth Management Advisor, Hans Myklebust, CFP® CLU®, ChFC®, CASL® and Director of Retirement Planning, Angela DiCastri. CLU®. Myklebust specializes in retirement income planning and is recognized as an industry leader by Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the Premier Association of Financial Professionals. DiCastri has nearly 20 years of experience in the financial services industry and is responsible for the oversight of Northwestern Mutual's retirement market strategy.
According to our 2014 Planning and Progress Study, the topic of retirement is noticeably absent from the regular American discourse. In addition, 42% of American adults have not spoken to anyone about their retirement and only 39% have had conversations with their spouse or partner about the subject. Let this Tax Day be a reminder of the importance of planning a comfortable retirement to both those who haven't broached the topic of saving for retirement and those who are actively working toward achieving their retirement goals.
