The WILL MAKER class is a “must-take” for everyone. The program was so easy to follow and it gives you prompts to make sure you don’t forget even the smallest details. The RETIRE READY class is also fantastic. It should be a “mandatory” class for every steel worker. Rob Engel gives such an in depth easy-to-understand, compilation of information that ranges from Medicare Part A&B to how to know how much and “when” you can retire. Can you afford to retire now? When should I draw SS? Wonderful questions to start asking — No matter how old you are.
