Speakers include a representative from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and a local independent financial planner.

PASSAGES helps older adults and family caregivers with important services to empower them to remain confident in their ability to sustain and enjoy independent lives. Joe Cobery, PASSAGES Executive Director, states “people who are retired, or are considering retirement, are especially vulnerable considering the current economic climate. It is extremely important that seniors and family caregivers are educated on all options for a well thought-out estate and long term care plan.” For more information about PASSAGES services go to www.passagescenter.org.
