Galloway, N.J. – The Stockton Center on Successful Aging (SCOSA) is sponsoring a financial management workshop for older adults on “Medical Care in Retirement: Take Care of Yourself So Others Won’t Have To,” on Thursday, Aug. 11, 2016. The free workshop will be held from 11 a.m. to noon at the Hammonton Canoe Club Senior Center, located at 100 Sports Drive in Hammonton, N.J.

The lecture will be presented by Charles C. Weeks, Jr., a certified financial planner and founder and president of Barrister Wealth Management, LLC. Weeks will discuss Medicare, Medigap and long-term care insurance.

“Many people wrongly assume at age 65 they no longer have to worry about medical expenses, but this couldn’t be further from the truth,” Weeks explained. “We will explore what is covered and what is not covered, and how to accurately project likely medical costs and what options are available to insure against medical catastrophes.”

Weeks earned a B.S. in Finance with a minor in Accounting at LaSalle University, and a Juris Doctorate from Villanova University School of Law. He spearheaded the effort to create the undergraduate Financial Planning Concentration and the Continuing Studies Certificate in Financial Planning at Stockton University, where he also serves as an assistant professor of Finance and an instructor for the certificate program.
