(WEBINAR) 📃 A Practice Case Study (45 min)

This training will show you the basics of creating quick and valuable retirement projections for a sample client.  We will start by entering client data, running the projections, and comparing some scenarios. In doing this, we will show you how you can use Snap Projections to find the answer to the following: 

  • How long will my money last? Am I going to be OK?
  • How much can I spend so I won't run out of money?
  • I'm currently saving $XXX. Will it be enough?   

Here is the customer case study we used during the webinar.  Feel free to practice it on your own and then watch the webinar to find the answers to your questions. A summary of the webinar with timestamps is provided below the video. If your questions aren't addressed in the recording, please reach out to us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help!
