Free Financial Seminars

The Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department will offer area seniors and those looking ahead to retirement the opportunity to learn about financial topics tailored specifically to their needs at free seminars this month at the Ocean Pines Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway.

Carrie Dupuie, a financial advisor with Raymond James, will lead two seminars in September. The first, “Maximizing Social Security,” will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 2:30-4 p.m. She will discuss ways to maximize Social Security benefits and optimize a retirement strategy for those aged 60-67 who are not yet taking Social Security.

Dupuie will also lead a “Navigating Medicare” seminar on Monday, Sept. 17 from 3-4:30 p.m. Suitable for ages 60-65 and their family members, this seminar will cover the health insurance program facilitated by the federal government.

Primerica will offer a “Saving for Retirement” financial wellness workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 7-9 p.m. The seminar will explore the root causes of the financial problems facing most families.

These seminars are free and open to the public, but spaces are limited and advance registration is required. To register, call the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department at 410-641-7052.
