Social Security, Medicare focus of retirement sessions

Human Resources will sponsor two free education sessions on March 11 and 12 to help employees plan for their transition to retirement. During the sessions, experts on Social Security and Medicare will discuss eligibility, enrollment and benefits.

The sessions are designed for employees age 62 and older, but everyone is welcome to attend regardless of age or retirement plan participation. There will be plenty of time for a Q&A at the end of each session. While no registration is required, please note that space is limited.
