Retirement and Divorce:
The Good, the Bad and the Ugliness!

How to help your clients go from
"yours and mine" back to "ours"

Thursday, March 30, 2017
Noon to 1 PM

This complimentary webinar -- developed especially for NYSCDM members as a new member benefit -- will focus on the following:

  • What you need to know but were afraid to ask about Defined Contribution vs Defined Benefit plans 
  • How psychological/emotional factors can play out for the participants of the divorce mediation process, especially around issues concerning the equitable distribution of financial assets, including retirement plans.
  • How divorce mediators can help their clients behave more rationally around resolving money-related conflicts, thereby preventing impasses in the mediation process.

Our featured speakers, Donna La Scala and Marc Miller, Ph.D. will make formal presentations, which will be followed by a live Q&A session where your questions will be addressed. 

Full instructions on how to participate will be provided after you register for the event.  

Non-members pay $50. However, if you join NYSCDM now at the half-year rate ($75), you can attend this webinar and other webinars without cost! Non-members can join via the webinar registration form.
