AARP Hawaii is hosting retirement-readiness workshops this spring on Oahu, Hawaii, Maui and Kauai. The sessions can help people decide when to start collecting Social Security benefits and think ahead about their health and long-term care needs.

“Retirement can be one of the most rewarding times in a person’s life, but it requires careful planning to be successful,” said Jackie Boland, AARP associate state director for community outreach. “Most people spend more time planning a vacation than they do planning for retirement.”

To register for a workshop, go to To volunteer for training to become a speaker on retirement issues, call 808-545-6003. To try out the AARP Retirement Calculator, go to
