Czarnowski ConsultingProgram Offerings

Social Security benefits were never intended to be someone’s sole source of income. Instead, they should be seen as the foundation on which to build a secure retirement.

Here’s an example of the topics which would be covered in a typical presentation which is designed to bring this message home to participants. Needless to say, the program can and will be tailored to meet the specific needs of the audience.

“Social Security and Retirement Planning: A Hit or Myth Proposition”
