April  23rd Tuesday Taking Care of Aging Parents


This seminar explores several aspects of caring for aging parents and identifies issues that can impact their well-being as well as your own.  One of the hardest topics almost all of us will face at some time in our lives.  Like many of our financial workshops, the sooner you begin the process and the more often you talk about it and plan for it, before you need to, the better it will go.  Please note, this is a very personal and not-so-fun topic, but the workshop is very engaging and thought provoking and you will leave feeling empowered.  Please join us and plan to share experiences you may have had already or ask questions of others who have already been through this stage of life.

May 22nd  Wednesday Navigating Student Loan Forgiveness


Many of you are likely eligible for forgiveness of your federal student loans through one or more of the federal programs currently available.  There have been many updates and changes made to these programs and the information you need to know is often times hard to find.  NEA MB has gathered the latest information as it applies to our members and will share that information with you during this workshop.  IN addition, we have a FREE online tool that will help you navigate your way to forgiveness.  Come learn about the latest federal programs and how to access the NEA Student Debt Navigation Tool.  Get a head start by logging in to www.neamb.com/start and creating your account.
