Taking Charge in Tough Times

Posted: Updated:

Protecting you and your money in a turbulent economy

With skyrocketing costs on everything from food to utilities, families losing their homes, retirement accounts shrinking and millions of Americans without a job, it's no wonder that Washingtonians are feeling swamped by the wake of the economic downturn.  To make matters worse, crooks and swindlers have emerged with a new crop of scams and schemes designed to take advantage of today's turbulent economy.

Where can you turn for the resources you need and sound advice on how to protect you and your money?  AARP has joined forces with some of the state's leading consumer advocates and experts to help you weather the financial storm. 

Join us for a free public event on April 8 in the Tri-Cities, or June 3 in Spokane to learn how to outsmart investment fraud, stay safe online, guard your identity, protect your retirement savings, cut costs and save money.

Sign-up now to attend one of our free "Taking Charge in Tough Times" events and hear from the experts with AARP, the Attorney General's Office, the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Department of Financial Institutions (DFI), KCTS 9, and the Washington State Crime Prevention Association.

Events will be held from 9:30am - 2:00pm on April 8 at the Three Rivers Convention Center, and on June 3 at the Red Lion Hotel at the Park.  Participants will receive free educational materials on how to navigate today's tough economy.  Lunch is also provided.
