Story Pitch: Eligible for Medicare This Year? Join the Club!

The oldest members of the Baby Boomer generation will be eligible for Medicare this year as they turn 65. AARP estimates that Medicare will gain 7,000 potential recipients per day in 2011. This will put a huge strain on the Medicare system and may leave retirees wishing they had other forms of income to cover what Medicare doesn't. Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) advises the following:

 Evaluate your retirement goals
 What are the different types of Medicare coverage?
 How much will Medicare provide?
 Ways to save - at any age

Your audience needs to understand how to know how much they will need to retire safely and be covered fully. A local CPA can help! To set up an interview, please contact Kathleen Miller at 215-972-6188 or kmiller@picpa.org or Jackie Barnard at 267-675-6255 or jbarnard@picpa.org.
