Are you a widow? Then you are a fighter, forging new ground as you strike out on your own after years of living a partnered life. Your decisions are no longer shared and the financial dreams you once had together are obsolete. This can be a daunting time. But it can also be a new dawn.
What does it mean to be on your own again? What dreams faded away when your spouse died? And what will the future hold?
Explore these questions and more as Bill Roach walks you through the 3 stages of widowhood, key financial challenges for widows, and best practices for navigating financial decision-making now that you are on your own. It will change the way you think, give you permission to be gentle with yourself, and get you connected with other women on the same path.
This interactive workshop is free and open to the public. You must be 55 or older to attend a class at Smith Senior Center. Widows, widowers, caretakers, and their friends are welcome.
