When you think of AARP in Connecticut, do you think of offers to exciting events and local attractions, as well as movie screenings? You should, since they’re available as local offers!
Do you think about tools and resources that can help you start or grow a small business, navigate career changes, take charge of your finances and provide easy steps to plan a healthy and secure future and retirement? We’ve got that in our Financial Security resources.
How about information and workshops to keep you and your family safe from scams and ID theft, able to navigate the complexities of caring for an aging loved one and prepare your home and community to be one in which you can live as your needs change? That’s us too, with our Fraud Watch Network information and our Caregiving resources.
Do you think about volunteering your time and talents to make a difference in your community? At AARP Connecticut, we have a variety of volunteer opportunities, depending on your interests, such as advocating at the State Capitol on behalf of all Connecticut residents age 50+, for consumer protections, affordable utilities and options that help you live independently in your own home. We also have volunteers who help with our Life Reimagined Checkups, our Fraud Watch Network events and presentations, our Movies for Grownups film screenings and much more.
In fact, all that we do might surprise you!
At AARP, we believe age and experience expand your real possibilities. Through local offers, learning opportunities, community outreach and advocacy, AARP Connecticut is your ally in discovering “What’s next?” for you in your life.
We are very excited about our new partnership with Tribuna! It allows AARP Connecticut an opportunity to bring you news, information and resources that impact you, your community and your family.
Through this partnership, we will explore legislative changes and their impact, the joys and challenges of family caregiving, how to prevent fraud and ID theft, the many ways to volunteer with us, resources to help you secure your financial future and more.
We invite you to explore our offerings in the community and learn more at our website, www.aarp.org/ct. Member and nonmembers alike are invited to attend our events and sign up for our emails.
