Blueprints: Building Blocks Workshop Series

June 25, 2019 from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm



Part of Cascade Investment Group’s Financial Education Series

The Blueprints financial planning process helps families with special-needs members build strong financial and legal plans. Many parents and family members don’t know where to start to protect available government benefits, get out of debt and build funds to maintain a high quality of life for their loved one with special needs.

Blueprints is broken up into a series of nine manageable steps, or Building Blocks, and each one focuses on a crucial planning element.  Rob Wrubel will present these Building Blocks as a series of workshops at The Arc of the Pikes Peak Region on Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m.to 6:00 p.m.

Building Blocks:
Tuesday, April 23     1. Dreaming About The Future
Tuesday, April 30     2. Starting To Design & 3.Taking Stock
Tuesday, May 21                     RESCHEDULED DUE TO WEATHER

Tuesday, June 18     5. Eliminating Debt Forever & 6. Financial Stability
Tuesday, June 25    7. Protect Your Family & 8. Investing For Your Future
Tuesday. July 9         9. Funding The Trust

On Tuesday, June 25, Rob will introduce Building Blocks #7 – “Protect Your Family” and #8 – “Investing For Your Future”.
Building Block #7 shows you how to shield your family from economic disaster at this stage of the Blueprints process. It’s one of the most important Building Blocks and it’s also the easiest to implement. Rob’s first book covers this in great detail. Building Block #8 helps you choose how much to save for important goals like retirement or funding a Special-Needs Trust and which investment options are available.

Attendance for all is encouraged, but not required.  Seating is limited.  Register below to reserve your spot.  We hope you can join us for these free workshops!
