<<I must plead ignorance, but what are the subjects typically discussed in a "Retirement Seminar" format?>>

That would depend on how it was structured. IMHO it would have to cover issues of importance to those already retired. Without trying to develop a detailed outline and just off the top of my head, I'd say it would have to include issues concerning investing, sources of income, personal financial planning, health/insurance, housing/location, legal affairs/estate planning, and personal planning in the areas of social relationships and use of time. As the task of developing an online seminar would fall primarily to me and if there is sufficient interest, then I would look to this board's habitues for content desires as well.

I think the big question would be who is the target audience (those already retired, those near retirement, and/or those still some years away from retirement)? If we include the latter, then certainly the seminar would have to include using and getting money from retirement plans/IRAs and perhaps a couple other topics as well.

Right now, nothing is firm and all I'm doing is watching any discussion and DoktorDi's poll with some interest.
