The June/July 2007 issue of AARP SEGUNDA JUVENTUD focuses on gaining financial literacy and teaching the next generation about savings and investments. A recent AARP SEGUNDA JUVENTUD study shows one-third of Hispanics ages 40 to 75 rely on family and friends for financial advice, while nearly two-thirds are self-taught. See how a three-generation family is securing their financial future through a variety of strategies such as home ownership and investing in 401(k)s and other retirement accounts.
The June/July issue of AARP SEGUNDA JUVENTUD also features Tony Plana, who stars as Betty's father, Ignacio Suarez, in ABC's Golden Globe-winning show, Ugly Betty. In this exclusive interview, the Cuba-born actor discusses his work with the Latino community as executive artistic director of the East L.A. Classic Theatre, which puts on modern bilingual productions of the classics for students, in addition to his television character and the significance of the show. Plana says, "It's such an important thing that [Betty] exists on TV. She's a U.S. Latina who is a college graduate... who has the courage to make it in the corporate world." Bonus: Check out behind-the-scenes footage from our exclusive photo shoot with Tony at www.aarpsegundajuventud.com.
Just in time for summer travel, AARP SEGUNDA JUVENTUD provides advice on traveling worry-free and safeguarding your investment when planning a trip. Notably, since September 11, travel insurance sales have tripled. Despite the cost-4 to 8 percent of the trip's total price-nearly a third of people insured their vacations in 2006. The most frequently purchased insurance is trip cancellation/interruption, which generally covers non-refundable trip costs if death, illness, or another calamity forces cancellation. Sally Hurme, an attorney with AARP's financial security team, says that if you're making deposits on tours months beforehand, trip cancellation insurance might work. But, for domestic, regularly scheduled flights, it may not be worth it.
