Senior Services of Alexandria: Managing Money in Retirement

Focus of Senior Services March 13 Speaker Series.

Are you afraid that you don’t have enough money to do the things that you like when you retire? Are you retired, but find it hard to make ends meet? Do you know about all the senior discounts available to older adults within the City of Alexandria and beyond? If these are some questions that you ask yourself, you might want to come and get the answers at SSA’s Speaker Series on “Managing your Money in Retirement.”

“Being proactive in effectively managing your finances in retirement can lead to a more content, fulfilled life during the golden years,” said Sally Hurme, author of AARP’s “Getting the Most out of Retirement,” and workshop presenter.

SSA’s “Managing your Money in Retirement,” workshop will take place on Wednesday, March 13 from 9:30 a.m. – noon at the Beatley Central Library, 5005 Duke St. in Alexandria. It will feature a group of dynamic speakers each with a different message about effectively managing your money.

Sally Hurme will discuss ways to “simplify” your finances including organizing bank accounts, paperwork, etc.

The Virginia Cooperative Extension will discuss “Living on a Fixed Income,” with helpful hints on how to make your retirement go further.

Tom West with Signature Estate and Investment Advisers will address how to make financial decisions to help live with purpose.

There will be an interactive Q&A session and time to talk with the presenters after the formal presentations. Copies of “Get the Most out of Retirement” will be raffled off courtesy of AARP Northern Virginia.

It is a free event with light refreshments, but we ask that you register either online at or call 703-836-4414, ext. 110. SSA staff will be on hand to escort you into the meeting room since the library doesn't open to the public until 10 a.m.
