3 p.m. on Friday, May 15
This seminar will cover the purpose and eligibility criteria for all of the Social Security Administration’s benefit programs. Besides retirement benefits, Social Security also offers disability benefits to individuals aged 18 years and older and survivor benefits to children and widowed spouses. Concerns about the future solvency of these programs will be addressed, followed by an overview of the online services available through Social Security’s website. Workers can use these services throughout their careers for financial planning purposes and later, while collecting Social Security, to manage their benefits. Finally, there will be a discussion about how to best protect yourself from the ongoing Social Security telephone scams targeting everyone, regardless of age, living in America. A Q&A session will follow the presentation. This program is relevant to everyone aged 18 years and older.”
