To our valued American Retirement Institute registrants and friends,
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation across the United States and want to share the efforts we’re taking for the safety of our course attendees, registrants, and financial educators. Many of our classes are being held on college and university campuses, libraries, and other community classroom settings, but as many schools and public gathering facilities are closing to contain the spread of the virus, our response cannot be to continue as usual.
More than ever before, now is the time to understand what your current retirement strategy is and be informed. The markets are unpredictable and will fluctuate vastly as this situation unfolds over the next few months. We want to equip our attendees with resources and tools so they may make informed decisions.
We recognize and are sensitive to the fact that pre-retirees and retirees are in the highest-risk age group for this illness. So, for your protection and for the protection of local communities, we are offering several different routes for registrants to get the retirement education they need. Depending on the classes available in your area and the local impact of the virus, your specific class could have one or many of the following options available to you:
If your class is canceled, changing to an online course, or continuing as planned, you will receive notice by email. You may, additionally, receive a phone call from the financial educator leading your class about next steps.
We hope this information is helpful and that all our ARI registrants and participants stay safe, healthy, and prepared for retirement!
