Bryan, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2013

Crestview is offering a free seminar at the George Bush Presidential Library on Thursday, February 28, 2013, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., which will provide up-to-date information on hot topics related to retirement. Hosted by Reba Ragsdale, board chair at MRC Crestview Retirement Community, the two-hour event will bring together experts on a wide range of topics that affect not only the current generation of retirees, but also the next generation as well.

“This event is about information sharing and educating the retirement age people in our area, but it will also be helpful to those facing retirement within the next five to 10 years,” said Ragsdale.

The lineup of speakers includes Denise Fries, a principal of Fries Financial Services, and Gary Alden, president, Kingwood Investment Group, LLC. They will provide information on Social Security benefits. Rene Ramirez, Veterans Services representative, will outline veteran benefits available to retirees, and attorney Mike Middleton will provide advice on estate planning and probate court. A representative from the Area Agency Council on Aging will address potential changes affecting Medicare benefits, and Peter Forbes, president, National Christian Foundation, will share advice on charitable giving.

The Methodist Retirement Communities Foundation and Crestview are sponsoring the event. Matthew Currie, Crestview Executive Director, said “Crestview is dedicated to bringing more resources to Brazos Valley seniors as part of our ongoing outreach effort. Our hope is to empower seniors with information that will enable them to plan for a successful retirement.”
