Conservative Retirement Planning Course
A Classroom Course for Adults, Teaching the Principles of Retirement Planning
The ABC Retirement Planning Model was developed for people ages 50 and up who would like to have an alternative to a high-risk approach to financial and retirement planning. For most conservative investors, the typical Wall Street approach doesn’t give them the peace of mind to sleep well at night, leaving them instead to worry that their assets may not last as long as they do. This comprehensive, multi-session course was developed to address the biggest concerns and challenges most Americans face when planning for retirement.
In these 2 informative sessions, we will cover the essentials of a sound retirement plan and break down key concepts in easy-to-understand terms. You will leave with a much better understanding of retirement planning and have the tools, insights, and proven strategies that you need to make informed decisions and confidently build a retirement plan that will meet your specific needs and goals.

Section 1: Introduction & Workshop Goals
Introduction to the workshop and setting up your workshop goals.
Section 2: The Need for a New Model
The days of pensions are disappearing and Social Security is in jeopardy! Today, retirees are forced to adapt to new rules which, in many cases, they have never played by in the past. Section 2 will cover ways to address these new rules, adjust to shifting paradigms, gain perspective on Wall Street myths, and learn about common retirement planning mistakes.
Section 3: The ABC Model
In Section 3, we will discuss the “Color” of Money: What is Yellow Money, Red Money, and Green Money, and what assets comprise them? Students will learn how to allocate the proper assets to each category. We will discuss how the ABC Model can help students in Bull Markets, and save them in Bear Markets.
Section 4: Retirement Planning Issues
This section will address the number one need in retirement… INCOME. The students will learn how to plan to have enough and stay ahead of the inflation curve. We begin that process by reviewing Social Security distribution options and exploring ways to maximize those distributions. For most Americans, their largest asset going into retirement is their 401(k), 403(b), or IRA. In this section, we will go into great depth on how to preserve those accounts from the devastation of taxes and Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).
Section 5: Making Your Own ABC Plan
In our final section, the students will learn how to create their own ABC Plan. We will discuss the planning process in great length, including the “Seven Steps to Building Your ABC Plan.” We will also discuss how to use the tools for planning that are in the workbook to make sure the plan is designed to suit the students’ true needs.
