OUR NEXT MEETING

All meetings are free and open to the public

The next meeting is Tuesday, April 1st at 7:00 PM in Multi-Use Room 3 at the Fort Collins Senior Center.

Are you prepared for a natural disaster (or any loss of your property)? The Insurance Information Institute (http://www2.iii.org/about-us.html) says that "having an up-to-date home inventory will help you:

  • Purchase enough insurance to replace the things you own.
  • Get your insurance claims settled faster.
  • Substantiate losses for your income tax return."

There are many ways to create that inventory. We will examine several free software applications for this purpose at the April meeting.
