Founder and Lead Trainer

Turning 65 Workshop

The Turning 65 Workshop was created by Tom Wright, who has 35 years of experience in financial services and employee benefits. Tom’s a great communicator who brings a wealth of practical knowledge- and even a touch of humor- to each workshop!

It’s an innovative workplace learning experience designed to help employees better understand the foundational programs of Social Security & Medicare. Two Formats are offered: ‘Almost 65’ for employees age 60+ and ‘Someday 65’ for employees ​of all ages.

More and more Baby Boomers are working beyond age 65. They have a pressing need to not only understand the basics of Medicare, but also how it coordinates with their group health coverage. And don’t forget Social Security! All this information is complex, and often hard to find.
