Latinos for a Secure Retirement and AARP are partnering to host our 2021 Cafecitos y Dinero series. With three webinars focused on helping Latinos in our community build a more secure financial future, our curated conversations are important because many Hispanic families do not have access to readily available resources. Aligned with the lack of generational knowledge and financial education, the Latino community is far behind compared to Whites. According to the latest available data from the National Retirement Risk Index calculated by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, more than 60 percent of Hispanic households are at risk of being unable to maintain their current standard of living in retirement, along with 54 percent of Black households and 48 percent of white households. Via our digital conversations, many families will learn how to integrate financial planning and savings strategies, how to take advantage of sponsored employer retirement plans, and increase their knowledge about financial literacy. Latinos for a Secure Retirement and AARP are committed to providing the Latino community with financial planning resources in order to help them and their families plan and live a secure financial future.
For any questions or to sponsor our community cafecitos please contact Johana at Johana@LatinoRetirement.org
