JGS Lifecare to Present Retirement-planning Seminar on June 7

LONGMEADOW — Most people dream of the day they can retire, envisioning hammocks and travel, maybe volunteering and spending more time with family and friends. Achieving this dream is much more likely for those who plan and prepare for their financial future. And yet, according to an Ipsos/USA Today survey of 1,250 adults aged 45-65 conducted in January, only 59% say they’re very or somewhat prepared for retirement.

JGS Lifecare will host a retirement-planning seminar, “Securing Your Retirement,” on Wednesday, June 7, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Ruth’s House, 780 Converse St., Longmeadow.

David Fedor, president of Fedor Financial Group in West Springfield, will discuss how to transform Social Security into a winning retirement strategy. Fedor is a certified financial planner and chartered retirement-planning counselor, and an active member of the Estate Planning Council of Hampden County since 2008. In addition, he joined the Western Mass. Eldercare Professional Assoc. in 2013 to stay current with issues facing the elderly.

“At JGS Lifecare, we provide for more than just the physical needs of our clients and residents,” President and CEO Martin Baicker said. “We offer programs and services designed to improve their overall well-being. Our JGS LifeEd Community Education Program allows us to offer educational seminars that benefit not only our clients, but our community as well.”

As part of the JGS LifeEd Community Education Program, this event is free and open to the public. Registration is requested by calling Mary-Anne Schelb at (413) 567-6212, ext. 3105.
