‘Smart Women, Smart Finances’ program goes beyond retirement planning

Daily News staff report

Women are unique in the financial world. They possess the skills necessary to make informed financial decisions but are more likely to allow their spouse or other household members to handle the money. Most women will, however, need to manage their financial life at some point – perhaps due to a major life change such as divorce or widowhood. Key strategies for maximizing your financial help will be the focus of this discussion. The “Smart Women – Smart Finances” seminar is set for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at the Dillon campus of Colorado Mountain College, 333 Fiedler Ave., Dillon. The cost is $25 per person. This seminar will examine employer and individual retirement plan options, special concerns for the divorcee and widow, tax efficient withdrawal strategies, integrating IRAs into your estate plan, long-term care insurance and college funding. Tracy Tutag, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, and financial consultant Laurie Liddick, will conduct this seminar, aiming to provide valuable information that pertains to women in transition. “All women are in a state of transition,” Tutag said. “We try to address specific issues and how they may affect a women’s financial health.” Laurie Liddick specializes in helping women manage retirement issues and is well informed on the PERA retirement options provided by the school district. Tracy Tutag is a member of the National Association for Female Executives and the United Way Eagle River Valley Board. Register at either the Dillon or the Breckenridge Campus of CMC, prior to the seminar; or call Jen Miller, (970) 453-6757, ext 2604, for more information.
