From Millard Susman, Member, Committee on Financial Matters in Retirement 

No doubt you have been wondering how the new Tax Jobs and Cuts Act of 2017, signed into law by President Trump on December 22, will affect your income taxes for the current year (2018). We have asked an expert from AARP to answer that question for UWRA members. Barrie Tabin Berger, senior legislative representative at AARP, Washington, DC, will explain to us the changes that this new law introduces into our annual struggle with our tax returns. 

With this seminar, the Committee on Financial Matters takes a bold leap into modern-day technology. Our speaker will be live but not present. Her talk will be streamed to us from AARP in Washington, DC. We will, however, be able to ask questions at the end of the talk. Happily, Lisa Lamkins, the advocacy director at AARP Wisconsin, will be present at the seminar to serve as liaison to Barrie Tabin Berger during the Q & A period following the seminar. 

We hope you will join us for this webinar, which deals with questions of great importance to all members of UWRA and tests a technology that can expand our access to busy experts who cannot fit a trip to Madison into their schedules.

Food pantry contributions 

The pantry for this event will be Open Seat Food Pantry. Both cash and checks payable to that organization will be accepted.


Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take the elevator to the first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking, the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot). On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.


Advance registration is required. If you are not registered in advance, you may not receive handouts. Register online or contact the Association office (see below) by May 1, to register. Members are invited to bring a guest, but the guest needs to be registered. If you or your companion registered for this seminar but cannot attend, please call 262-0641 by 8:30 a.m. on the day of the program.
