WSU Tri-Cities Offers Retirement Course

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash--  With a troubled economy, it's never too early to start planning your retirement, and WSU Tri-Cities wants to help.

The college is having a retirement course, and it's already grabbed a lot of attention.  So much in fact, that the first round of classes is already filled up.

The seminar teaches people how to set aside money for retirement, eliminate debt and how to live comfortably on a set income.  The course plans to integrate theory with real life practice.

"It really fits for people to go out and understand the real process," says Todd Halterman, wealth manager of Pacific Crest Planning, and also a teacher at the seminar.  "Traditionally, retirement planning has always been something a little different than it is today.   And today we have a new view on retirement and new opportunities, but those are also some added responsibilities as well that people need to be aware of."

Some good news if you think this sounds like something you want to attend: they are planning another class for the growing need.
