Rep. Willis and AARP to Host Pre-Retirement Financial Seminar in Bensenville



BENSENVILLE, Ill. – State Rep. Kathleen Willis (D-Addison) will be joining the Illinois Chapter of AARP to host a free financial planning seminar for residents between the ages of 50 and 64 on February 23rd at the Bensenville Public Library from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

“I am excited to join AARP in hosting this important seminar that will help people plan for their financial security,” said Willis. “In difficult economic times we must have a financial plan in place if we are to avoid debt; and this event will help people in this effort.”



This financial seminar will review how to take charge of credit card debt, develop a savings plan, protect one’s assets, set financial goals, and create a personal budget. Specialists from AARP will be on hand to help residents who have questions regarding how to avoid financial pitfalls that pose a threat to pre-senior citizens.



“As the lingering effects of the economic recession remains, I hope residents will join me to learn best practices in order to protect themselves against the financial pitfalls that can be avoided with good planning and sound advice,” said Willis.



Kathleen Willis is serving her second term in the Illinois General Assembly as State Representative of the 77th District, which includes O’Hare Airport and portions of Addison, Bellwood, Bensenville, Franklin Park, Maywood, Melrose Park, Northlake, Stone Park, and Wood Dale.
