Webcast Dispels Retirement Planning Myths

February 15, 2013 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – Northwestern Mutual is hosting a webcast designed to shatter the top five retirement planning myths.

“Make Your Money Last: Shattering the Top 5 Retirement Planning Myths,” is designed to educate participants about the realities of today’s retirement landscape. The webcast is the second in the “Planning for Success” series.

As part of the webcast, Rebekah Barsch, vice president of market strategy at Northwestern Mutual, will discuss crucial retirement-related issues including longevity, income planning and health care costs. The goal of the webcast is to provide participants with a better understanding of why many of the traditional approaches to retirement planning no longer apply and how they can avoid the risk of outliving money saved for retirement.

The webcast is March 5 at 12 p.m. CST and is open to the public free of charge. Individuals can register here.

In an effort to encourage participant discussion, a live Q&A session will occur at the end of the webcast in which participants will be able to ask Barsch questions directly. Further, Northwestern Mutual will be live-Tweeting during the webcast using the hashtag #PlanningForSuccess.

Post-webcast, a recording will be available on www.northwesternmutual.com/webcasts
