From Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services
LANSING – This fall Michigan residents will have better tools and information to help plan for retirement, thanks to numerous financial, insurance, community and non-profit organizations coming together to help launch Reinventing Mi Retirement.
AARP Michigan is a gold sponsor.
“The response we received from our sponsors and supporters to make Reinventing Mi Retirement a reality was phenomenal,” said Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) Director Ann Flood. “I can’t thank our partners enough. This is truly a great example of what the public and private sector can do for Michigan residents when we unite on important issues facing those we serve.”
Reinventing Mi Retirement will host nine free events across the state to help Michigan residents age 50 and older learn more about how they can achieve financial security in their later years. The events will all be held on Oct. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Michigan residents can register by visiting the DIFS website or by calling 877-999-6442.
Events will be in Alpena, Detroit, Escanaba, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, Three Rivers, Troy and West Branch. Come back to www.aarp.org/mi for details.
Reinventing Mi Retirement was developed by DIFS in response to Governor Snyder’s Special Message on Aging and made possible with grant funds received from the Michigan Securities Investor Education and Training Fund and contributions from sponsors and supporters across the state.
