Retirement Planning Seminars at Sams Ranch

Michael Sams offers Medicare and retirement planning seminars at his new, state-of-the-art equestrian facility

Decatur, IL: In early July, Sams/Hockaday & Associates announced “Retirement Planning Seminars at Sams Ranch,” a new seminar event for central Illinois seniors hosted by Sales Associate, Michael Sams. These 1-hour seminars are designed to educate older adults on the many confusing aspects of Medicare, and they offer a new way for seniors to understand their health and savings options in retirement.

“The old way of doing seminars at a library or over a formal dinner is boring and often high-pressure,” says Jeff Sams, father of Michael Sams and Co-Founder of Sams/Hockaday & Associates. “The peaceful venue at Sams Ranch is a much-needed breath of fresh air, and Michael has a way of simplifying Medicare and putting it all into (cowboy) English. I expect this seminar event to become a staple for seniors in our community.”

The first seminar took place on August 4, 2020, and it was a roaring success. Sandee Moyer, soon-to-be-retiree says, "It was like a destination. It was going to the old TV show Dallas – I loved it!" Moyer says she learned Medicare isn't as overwhelming as everyone thinks.

Whether you’re 5 years away from Medicare or have been on the program for several years, Sams expects these seminars to continue to offer clarity and education:

  • Get clear answers on Medicare Part D drug plans: there are over 26 choices and the ever-mysterious penalties are based on the “national base beneficiary premium,” which just so happens to change every year.
  • Understand what you can do with your 401k or IRA: learn the truth about tax penalties, required minimum withdrawals, and rolling your retirement account over.
  • Unscramble the alphabet soup of Medicare: there are Parts A, B, C, and D and Plans F, G, and N – and that’s just scratching the surface!

Sams’ 1-hour seminars are held the first Tuesday of every month at 6pm. Sams plans to offer these free, educational events for as long as the community finds them helpful.
