Helping you prepare for and live in retirement

Your local Nationwide Personal Retirement Consultant, Cathie Purdon, is available to work with you as you prepare for retirement. This is a no-cost service. Cathie is a Certified Financial Planning Professional™ and a licensed financial representative, and can give you extra assistance to prepare for retirement. She is able to provide a personal and objective look at your retirement resources and compare it to your retirement needs. A more in-depth look at where you are at now may assist you in your decision making regarding your retirement savings and planning. She is available to answer your questions and provide education on Social Security, Health Care and Long Term Care Planning through the detailed Cash Flow Analysis that comes with each Retirement Income Plan.

These services are available to any Plan participant – at no extra charge.
