Peoria Support has invited a representative from The Social Security Administration to share information regarding retirement and social security benefits. If you’ve been wondering about any of the following questions, then this seminar is for you!**
• What are the requirements to receive the benefits?
• What are some different filing options I have?
• What resources/tools can help me decide when to file?
• Can I work and get benefits at the same time?
• Can other family members get benefits if I file?
• How is my benefit calculated (what years are used)?
• How does Medicare fit into my Retirement benefits?
• How can I create a personal my Social Security account to see my earnings history and benefit estimates?
Jack Burns, Public Affairs Specialist for Social Security in Arizona, has worked with Social Security for almost 13 years, many of those years either directly assisting those filing for benefits with Social Security or supervising and training the staff that does this in our local offices. He also educates the community on benefits and services of Social Security.

Effective Communication Strategies with Someone with Alzheimer’s
August 18, 2015 11:15—12:15 pm
The Alzheimer’s Association will hold two educational seminars back-to-back for your convenience...attend one or both, either way they are FREE to attend! Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is often the primary way for people with dementia to communicate as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can be challenging so the first seminar will give you insight into this and help you identify common behavior triggers. The second seminar will teach you how to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
Location: Rio Vista Recreation Ctr, 8866-A W Thunderbird Rd, Peoria AZ 85382
