About Us

Social Security & Medicare form the foundation of retirement in America, yet are not well understood. The Turning 65 Workshop was created by Thomas Wright, who spent over 35 years in the financial services industry. Tom saw first-hand this widespread 'illiteracy'... and how hard it often is to find reliable, understandable, and objective information. 

Essential Information. Engaging Communication.

A Turning 65 Workshop delivers practical, need-to-know information in a memorable way. Our primary audiences are pre-retirees in their mid-50s to mid-60s. We believe strongly that live presentations make the strongest impression- and leave the most lasting impact- on this age group. 

Teaching. Not Selling.

Unlike many Social Security & Medicare presentations which have an underlying motive to sell insurance or financial products, we only offer paid programs to ensure there's never any hidden sales agenda. We offer memorable events filled with targeted insights that capture audience attention.
