On October 1, 2020, AARP MA held Reach Out, A Massachusetts Summit to Spark Action, which was attended by 200+ people.  It was the culmination of months of work, started even prior to the pandemic, in partnership with the UMass Boston Gerontology Institute and numerous other organizations as part of the AARP MA Taskforce to End Loneliness and Build Community.  Virtual community conversations were held to glean ideas and information about how communities and organizations were addressing loneliness and social isolation, and to find out what are the biggest challenges.  View the report and the 10/1 event.  Lisa Marsh Ryerson, President of the AARP Foundation, was the keynote speaker at the event. The work of the Taskforce continues with a focus on technology and the digital divide, intergenerational projects, public awareness and strategic partnerships. The #ReachOutMA campaign continues with the goal of reaching those most in need of connections, community and support.  Find out more here:
Understanding how your future retirement might affect your spouse is important.  Here are a few things to remember when you’re planning for your retirement.  Your spouse’s benefit amount could be up to 50 percent of your full retirement age benefit amount.  If you qualify for a benefit from your own work history and a spouse’s record, we always pay your own benefit first.  You cannot receive spouse’s benefits unless your spouse is receiving their retirement benefits (except for divorced spouses).
