June Investment & Estate Planning Seminar in MIA – SAVE THE DATE!

Do you have a will? What are your investment strategies for retirement planning? If you need help answering these types of questions, please save the date for an upcoming seminar! Will de Cardenas, a Financial Planner with the AA Credit Union’s Flagship Financial Group, will be hosting an Investment and Estate Planning Seminar in MIA on June 27th. This informative and interactive seminar will be held in the Flight Service Conference room.

There will be two sessions: 1130-1300 and 1400-1530 LBT. Before each session begins, Patrick Hancock from the APFA Retirement Department will conduct a short presentation on the 401(k) and Pension. He will also be available to answer any questions pertaining to retirement.

More details and a link to register for the sessions will be available soon on the Retirement page of the APFA website, and participation is open to all bases.
