How to Get an “A” in Retirement

This course is for those who don’t want an average retirement. It is about understanding the new normal for retirement, building on opportunities, solving problems and making informed decisions. It is never too early to consider ways to address retirement goals and resource needs, even decades before retiring. The course is scheduled to take eight weeks to complete, with a new lesson added each week. For more information, including answers to FAQ's about this course, go to http://extension.missouri.edu/hes/retirementclass/

Benefit-eligible faculty and staff completing this course between November 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018 will be awarded 100 wellness incentive points for the Healthy for Life wellness incentive program (Points: 100, Cost: $50)
