Chapter 88 of Title 10, United States Code, "Military Family Programs and Military Child Care," February 1, 2010.

In gearing up for Military Saves Week this webinar will discuss one of the most important savings goals of American families — saving money for a comfortable retirement. Such topics will include research findings about the retirement preparedness of American families, conflicting opinions about "the number" (the amount of money needed to comfortably retire), factors that influence "the number" and retirement savings calculation tools such as the Ballpark Estimate and Monte Carlo simulations. Case studies and chat questions will be included to apply the webinar content to real world situations. There are CEUs available.
