AARP envisions an America where individuals have financial resilience. That means they have financial resources and opportunities to match their longer lifespan. Financial Freedom is designed to empower individuals and help people think about and actually develop short-term financial solutions to achieve long-term savings. Workshops conducted by Certified Financial Planners from the Certified Financial Planners Board and Standards, Inc., are offered through churches and other community-based organizations.
