Introducing the APERS Blog page. Here we will feature a new entry each week. A lot of the entries will be pulled from previous publications such as newsletters, bulletins, fliers or books, that we feel deserve a second look. Future articles will also include retirement related articles, links and discussion, we hope you will find helpful.
