1/16/2021 – AARP + Jackson Hewitt

This week we’re addressing the current jobs crisis by talking about unemployment and who is most affected by it, but also some resources that are available to help. Speaking on this is Susan Weinstock, VP of Financial Resilience, AARP – she covers who has been most affected by the unemployment crisis, how the new COVID relief bill may help improve chances of getting a job, what unemployed workers can do to improve their chances of getting a job, and what resources are available for older Americans who are looking for jobs.

We’re also speaking with Mark Steber, Chief Tax Information Officer with Jackson Hewitt, about how different filing taxes this year will be different than in years past. Mark offers suggestions on things to consider while preparing your tax returns, or questions to ask when seeking out help in tax prep. Because Covid-19 brought so many changes to financial situations, this will have an impact on tax returns!
