Trying to make heads or tails of health care, with its seemingly endless changes and complexity, is enough to make just about anyone queasy.
Against that backdrop, a retirement planning expert who speaks with clarity and authority is the perfect antidote. On Thursday, January 30th, Jim Flanagan of Bentron Financial Group leads an in-depth discussion on Health Care in Retirement at the Lombard Public Library, 110 W. Maple Street.
In his free presentation, which begins at 7 p.m., Flanagan will provide detail of the four parts of Medicare: Parts A (Hospital Insurance), Part B (Medical Insurance), Part C (Medicare Advantage), and Part D (Prescription Drugs).
To pre-register for the event, call 630-627-0316, x. 223.
He will also share his knowledge of Medicare Supplements and the different plans that are available. In addition, students will receive an overview of long-term care insurance and the four strategies used to protect yourself from the high costs of long-term care.
The founder of Naperville-based Bentron Financial Group, Flanagan has been advising people at or near retirement age for more than 20 years. For the past 15 years his specialties have included counsel on how and when to tap into Social Security benefits.
