ANNAPOLIS, Md., July 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Scarborough Capital Management is hosting a series of seminars around the country to assist General Motors (GM) retirees and pre-retirees, in making decisions about whether to accept the recent lump-sum pension buyout offered by GM.  "This is an important decision that can have far-reaching ramifications for those in or approaching retirement," said Scarborough Capital Management President and CEO Mike Scarborough. "I encourage every individual who receives the pension buyout offer to talk to a trusted financial professional before making any decision."
