Denise Gilmer, West Memphis, Arkansas “I’ve been working since age 16 so 40 years in total, but my first job as an adult was with the Employment Security Department doing data entry. I do worry about not having enough money after retirement because I work
“My first job was with the Youth Opportunities Unlimited program at the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff when I was in junior high school, then later on when I graduated high school I worked at Walmart for about eight months. Then I decided to get a trade, I went to Southern Institute-Cosmetology to become a beautician, which was something I always had a passion for. Social Security to me is like a retirement plan, benefits come with it, it also helps people with mental and physical challenges it especially benefits children when they can draw their parent’s social security if needed. It also helps you to not be as much of a burden later on in old age” Deidra is an entrepreneur who owns her own beauty shop “Lady’s Touch” in West Memphis, Ark. | Aaron Turner for AARP

Denise Gilmer, West Memphis, Arkansas “I’ve been working since age 16 so 40 years in total, but my first job as an adult was with the Employment Security Department doing data entry. I do worry about not having enough money after retirement because I worked in the private medical sector for many years and had to pay into my own social security. So you worry, did I put enough in? But If I live to get my social security I will be fine.” Denise currently works for Methodist as a claims rep, at their central biller office.| Aaron Turner for AARP
