Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced registration is open for the free regional Rutledge Retiree Resources event July 30, in Hope. The event is a part of a larger series of educational programs hosted by Rutledge for seniors throughout the state.

According to a press release, the agenda includes programs designed to educate retirees about how they can protect themselves from pervasive and vicious scam artists.

“Arkansans should be able to spend retirement enjoying time with family and friends and not losing their hard-earned savings to lazy, low-life con artists,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Face-to-face meetings allow retirees to look us in the eyes and ask questions directly about how they can protect their finances.”

Attendees will hear from the Attorney General’s public protection experts about protecting themselves from scams and identity theft, proper prescription drug disposal, resources regarding nursing homes and home care and how to protect finances.

The event will be held in the Washington Suite of Hempstead Hall at the University of Arkansas Community College, 2500 South Main Street, Hope, Arkansas. For those interested in attending this free educational event or future events, register today. Lunch will be provided.

Rutledge Retiree Resources have been held in Fayetteville, Jonesboro and DeWitt. Registration is also available for an additional Rutledge Retiree Resources event scheduled September 5 in Little Rock.
