Social Security Presents Free Retirement Seminar

“Are You Ready for Retirement?” will be the subject of a free seminar hosted by the Social Security Administration (SSA) on Thursday, January 10, 2019.

The event begins at 6 p.m. in the Community Room of the Redding Library on Parkview Avenue. Two SSA employees will present a brief overview of Retirement, Survivor, and Medicare benefits and then answer general questions about each program.

“Everyone is invited, and we’ll answer as many questions as we can during the program,” said Patricia Mrofka, Assistant District Manager of the Redding Social Security Office.

She encourages everyone to create a “mySocialSecurity” account by going to the agency’s website at

“They should bring that information with them on January 10 because it will show them approximately how much they will receive at age 62 and beyond,” Mrofka said. “There are advantages to taking the benefits at the earliest possible age, and there are advantages to waiting. No two situations are ever the same.”
