Anthem Financial Club to have a Zoom meeting on October 1 - No meeting on September 3


The AFC will not be having a membership meeting on September 3 due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

However, we will be having a “Zoom” meeting on October 1st (7 p.m.). Joyce Barr will speak about the changes planned to Medicare for 2021. Joyce is an SCA resident who has spoken to our Club before.  She is very knowledgeable about Medicare, Medicare Advantage and health plans in general.  Detailed instruction about how to access the webinar will be emailed to Financial Club members.  The instructions and link will also be on the AFC website for use by both Club members and non-members who may want to register for the Zoom meeting.  There are currently no AFC meetings planned for November 5 and December 3.  Information on future AFC meetings will be publicized here on the AFC website.

Next Financial Club Breakfast Meeting on September 21

Breakfast meeting

Financial Club breakfast meetings are held on the third Monday of each month at 9:00am in the Arlington Room at Anthem Center.  Due to the continuing uncertainty about use of the SCA facilities, there will be no July breakfast meeting.  The next breakfast meeting is planned for  September 21.  The topic will be: The Secure Act of December 2019: “How will it affect our IRAs and our beneficiaries when they inherit our IRAs? What are the rules for inherited Roth IRAs?”  We will also cover Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) and how to calculate them. Recent meetings covered Cyber Security, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), Wills & Trusts, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Travel Tips, Cable/Direct/Sling TV, Credit Cards, Life After Anthem, Travel Insurance, and Pre-Paid Funerals.  All meetings have been well attended with lively and informative discussions.
