Educational Video Series

s you probably know, David teaches several retirement planning and Social Security classes at USI each year.  These classes cover a variety of topics, including estate planning, investments, taxes, education planning, Medicare, and much more.  The Passport to Retirement class offers 7.5 hours of in-class instruction over a three week period.  These classes also offer CPE credits for accountants.

As a result of the pandemic, we taught our first virtual class based around Social Security.  We received very good feedback from attendees who enjoyed not only the safety from being virtual this year, but also the convenience of being able to watch from the comfort of their home.

We decided that we would try something new, which is an education series covering a variety of topics we believe are most useful.  John and David have recorded several videos that you can watch at your convenience if it is something that interests you.  The first one recorded talks about some of the basics of estate planning.  A link is included below if you would like to watch.
