To help us all face a number of retirement planning uncertainties with more information, the public is invited to a program for Wednesday, March 12 at 2:00 p.m. called Making Plans: Social Security and Planning for Long Term Care.

Addressing the question of when to start drawing Social Security, Michael Walker from the Social Security administration will offer ideas on how to maximize benefits.

Nursing home care can be an enormous financial drain of life long savings, and the likelihood of needing at least some of this kind of care is predicted to be 70% for those who are currently 65 and over. Attorney Al Fargione will discuss shielding your assets, or those of your parents, from devastating nursing home expenses.

The meeting will be held Lyndon House Arts Center, 293 Hoyt St. You can attend live from anywhere through a video conference on your computer, tablet or mobile phone.

In the last century human life expectancy has increased by 30 years.  Some call these years the "bonus years." An exhibition at ATHICA calls them "The Third Act." Whatever you call them these years give today's older population time to continue learning and enjoying life as well as presenting some new challenges.

Lizzie Saltz, curator of The Third Act: contemplating aging at the Athens Institute for Contemporary Art (ATHICA), will conduct a gallery tour of works by nine artists who have created thought provoking and sensitive art in a variety of media exploring this extension in human life. The gallery tour is free and open to the public and will be archived on this website for those who can not attend in person. ATHICA is located at 160 Tracy Street, Athens, GA.

The gallery talk is made possible in part by a leadership grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded to the Athens Regional Library System and Lyndon House Arts Center called Reflecting, Sharing, Learning.rls logo

Other programs sponsored by ATHICA to help patrons enjoy and explore the ideas in this exhibition are listed on their website. ATHICA is an independent, non-profit gallery promoting and supporting innovative contemporary art and artists through exhibitions, education, and events.
