Many ARCRA members, not surprisingly, are AARP members as well. If you are, you get the discounts, and you get their several excellent publications. Maybe you saw this recent article, 99 Ways to Save:
Or maybe you didn’t. Many of us still have a lot of information come into our homes on paper every week, and about as quickly go out.
That’s why ARCRA is starting a new service for our members. We’re systematically checking information from AARP, but also from other organizations that especially speak to seniors: government agencies with articles about Medicare and Social Security, consumer organizations, health care entities like Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins, financial advisory firms, and more.
We’ll often update our website with interesting links we find. We’ll also store it conveniently, so you can find information you are looking for months or even years after it first appears here.
Our chief links-watcher is Mary Ackerly. Mary was long-time head of communications for American Red Cross Chapter and Blood Center in Atlanta, and went on to an equally distinguished career at Agnes Scott College. Now she and her husband, Jim, are enjoying an idyllic retirement in the mountains of North Carolina.
