AARP Indiana Wants to Help Hoosiers “Ready for Retirement”

May 9, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS - After more than 13,000 Hoosiers took part in an informational phone call AARP hosted about retirement planning last year, AARP Indiana decided to take the information on the road. Spokeswoman Katie Moreau says the organization will be hosting "Ready for Retirement" presentations in five cities across the state this month.

"The events are going to be in two parts. The bulk of it will be the presentations, but at the beginning of it will be a resource fair."

Moreau says experts will be on hand for each presentation.

"A certified financial planner, an estate planner, a gentleman who used to work for the Social Security Administration, and somebody from AARP to talk about our online financial tools."

She says the events will be held in Columbus, Mishawaka, Indianapolis, Terre Haute and Fort Wayne.

Moreau says AARP's online calculators are very handy and help illustrate what benefits will be available...

"The Social Security benefits calculator is very detailed. You input all your information - and your spouse's, if that's applicable - and then it will show you what you will potentially get at the different ages - 62, 65 and 70."

More information on the events is online at
