Western North Carolina has a long history of hosting, helping, and honoring veterans, whether they grew up here or came here during or after their service.

Investment and savings fund planning for future retirement
It’s National Savings Day – the one day a year set aside to remind us of the importance of saving and reflect on our own savings habits. At AARP, we don’t need a national holiday to remind us just how vital saving for the future is. We know that saving for retirement is one of the most important things you can do for your future, and we work 365 days a year to provide resources to help you plan and grow your savings. But, we can’t do it alone. That’s why this National Savings Day, we are calling on North Carolina lawmakers to create a Work and Save program to make saving for the future easier for everyone.

In addition, AARP is working with state lawmakers to expand broadband access to unserved areas in the state.
