In the legislative session that begins Jan. 8, AARP Idaho is urging state lawmakers to pass the Idaho Family Caregiver Act, which would help caregivers confidently perform medical or nursing tasks when a loved one comes home from a hospital stay.

More than half of private-sector employees in Utah don’t have access to a retirement savings plan at work, and many reach retirement age without enough savings. That’s why AARP Utah is working with lawmakers and business and labor groups to draft a Work and Save bill.
