About Us

Social Security & Medicare form the foundation of retirement in America, yet are not well understood. The Turning 65 Workshop was created in 2016 by Thomas Wright, who spent over 30 years as a benefits broker and consultant. Tom saw first-hand this widespread 'illiteracy'... and how hard it often is to find reliable, understandable, and objective information. 

Essential Information. Engaging Communication.

The Turning 65 Workshop delivers practical, need-to-know information in an unforgettable way. We offer employee presentations designed for pre-retirees age 60+, and also a comprehensive 3-hour training program for HR & Benefits teams.  Our workshops can transform the level of understanding & confidence about Social Security & Medicare within your organization!

Teaching. Not Selling.

Unlike other presentations which have an underlying motive to promote insurance, retirement, or other financial services, we conduct paid learning programs that are unbiased and free of any hidden marketing agendas. A Turning 65 Workshop is a memorable event filled with targeted insights that capture the attention of participants... and stay with them long afterwards.
