Saving for the Future Across Generations logos - horizontal.png
Across generations, many adults are grasping for financial security. Join us for a panel discussion on the challenges four generations – Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Boomers – face saving for their futures. Panelists will share common experiences and explore solutions that could help all save more for the future. Speakers include:
Saving
A new AARP survey of voters ages 25+ found an overwhelming majority (92%) agree that elected officials should support legislation that makes it easier for all workers to save for retirement from their paycheck. Further, 91% of voters support establishing a program if their employer does not currently offer them a way to save. More than 50 million American workers have no access to a retirement savings plan through their employers and more than a quarter (26%) of non-retired people have no retirement savings. On November 9 AARP Minnesota, Black Women’s Wealth Alliance, Bridgemakers, and Youthprise are joining forces to host a panel discussion on the challenges four generations – Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Boomers – face while saving for their futures.

If the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us anything, it’s that access to high-speed internet is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. Unfortunately, the high-speed internet too many Minnesotans need is not available where they live, and this holds them back.
