Ready to retire, conceptual words on blackboard.
AARP Massachusetts will help Bay Staters reach their future financial goals with a Ready for Retirement event on Saturday, Nov. 4. The free session will run from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 35 Worcester Center Blvd., Worcester.
The Commonwealth is home to more than 1 million residents age 65 and over. Some of these people are both financially secure and healthy. However, a recent Massachusetts Commission on Elder Economic Security report highlighted that 6 in 10 single elders do not have the income to meet their basic needs. They are often aided by the MassHealth program, which includes Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
