There is a proverb which states that a dream without a plan is just a wish. AARP in Wisconsin offered a free course at the Italian Conference Center on September 22, 2015, to help turn personal financial dreams into a plan. Local financial planning professionals, benefit specialists, and credit report counselors, were available to meet one-on-one with individuals who registered to participate in the four-hour seminar. Financial security rarely comes about through luck or birth. It is the result of hard work and discipline, according to organizers. The event was co-sponsored by Aurora Family Service, the Social Security Administration, Interfaith Older Adult Programs, Milwaukee County Department on Aging, Legal Action of Wisconsin, and the Social Development Commission.
