Starting this summer, UNC Charlotte's Continuing Education department will offer a series of free educational events covering a variety of topics.
The Brown Bag Series begins with a seminar on Becoming Social Security Savvy on August 6 at 12:00 PM at our Center City location. The discussion's topics will include how Social Security benefits are calculated, how benefits are taxed, maximizing spousal and survivor benefits, and personal claiming decisions. Participants will come away with a clear understanding of how monthly Social Security income changes based on the age at which you claim, strategic ideas for maximizing your personal Social Security benefits, and insight on how to incorporate Social Security into a comprehensive retirement income strategy.
This is event is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
Four student teams, comprised of a total of 10 to 12 individuals from the College of Computing and Informatics, will participate in a regional hackathon set for Saturday and Sunday, July 12 - 13, in the PORTAL building at UNC Charlotte.
The University is hosting one of several such events being held worldwide; the goal is to expose technology innovators and the financial services community to one another. Hackathon organizers are founders of "The Money Event" (TME) held during Super Mobility Week in Las Vegas Sept. 9 - 11. TME sessions focus on innovations in commerce, banking, payments and financial services in general.
According to hackathon organizers, their mission is to demonstrate the power of open platforms and mobile technologies in fostering innovations in financial services.
