Finally, a way for today’s retirees to navigate the complex and evolving world of retirement financial planning!

American Retirement Education (A.R.E.) gives you straightforward information about financial retirement planning. A.R.E. advisers do NOT sell products. Instead, we provide an objective and complete education of the financial and tax environment facing prospective and current retirees.

Formerly known as FOFE, American Retirement Education was founded to provide objective, unfiltered education on financial products for investors and future retirees. Most of us are inundated by information that is often conflicting and confusing. A.R.E. education programs are designed to cut through the confusion, to unravel conflicting information and to provide the pros and cons of financial planning.

Unlike typical courses that advance the Wall Street approach to financial planning, we educate on all available options. There are no bad registered financial products; there are only products that are bad for you. Our courses help to raise your overall financial literacy about investments and planning strategies.
