Hickory – A “New To Medicare” seminar will take place Friday, September 7, at 10am at the West Hickory Senior Center, 400 17TH Street SW, Hickory NC.

Are you or a friend or loved one turning 65? It is very important for everyone becoming eligible for Medicare to get accurate information about coverage options they must make as they approach age 65. Attention to these issues will help you avoid serious and costly problems later.

Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) Counselors, trained by the NC Department of Insurance, will lead the information session and will be happy to answer your questions. A Social Security Representative may also be present to answer questions.

Please call the Council on Aging to attend at 828-328-2269.
