Retirement Planning Tips

April 11-15 is National Retirement Planning Week, and April is also Financial Literacy Month in Colorado.  The Colorado Division of Securities, part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), has put together some helpful tips for retirement planning, including how to be aware of pension scams; understanding high risk investments; and planning for retirement in the event you lose your spouse.  These tips are part of DORA’s Take 5 to Get Wise campaign, which provides public service announcements and articles that take just five minutes to read, but can help you learn important information about protecting your finances and avoiding hassles later.
