Join the Administration on Aging for a Webinar Series on Social Media as a Retirement Tool

Webinar Series on Social Media:  A Retirement Tool for the 21st Century

In recent years, social media has added new dimensions to the resource tools available for retirement planning and ways to protect assets once in retirement.  To shed light on how social media can be incorporated in developing a sustainable retirement plan, the Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) will sponsor a two session webinar series entitled Social Media:  A Retirement Tool for the 21st Century.  The goal of this webinar series is to provide participants, including older adults and their caregivers, women, members of the Aging Network, Older Americans Act service providers, and other professionals with information that will help to unravel the mystery of planning for the future by using social media as a tool to reach and maintain retirement goals.  The two sessions will be held on back-to-back days, on Wednesday, July 27 and Thursday, July 28.  We look forward to your participation in both webinars.
