DENVER – Rep. Mindy Fee (R-Manheim) invites all senior citizens and their families who are residents of the 37th Legislative District to participate in her Senior Seminar on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Denver Borough Municipal Building, 501 Main St. in Denver. Admission is free.
“This seminar is like a GPS for those over 60 who are starting to navigate into their golden years,” Fee said. “The resources and information available at this free event will be valuable for planning and for personal protection.”
The seminar will primarily focus on two topics: protection from identity theft and scams, and dealing with Medicare.
The identity theft portion of the seminar will be led by a representative from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office. Specifically, attendees will learn how to spot scams, avoid becoming a target of identity theft, and how to properly report scams and fraudulent activity to local police.
“Senior identity theft is on the rise,” Fee said. “Older citizens have spent a lifetime building credit-worthiness and retirement funds. They can be seen as easy targets with big payoffs by an identity thief. This seminar will teach the best methods of protection.”
The Medicare portion of the seminar will be taught by a representative from APPRISE, a health insurance counseling program associated with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging. Attendees will receive a full explanation of the various parts of Medicare (A, B, C, and D), as well as supplementary coverage options.
Free refreshments and door prizes will be available. No reservations are necessary.
The 37th Legislative District is comprised of the townships of Clay, East Cocalico, West Cocalico, Elizabeth, Mount Joy, Penn and Rapho and the boroughs of Denver, Adamstown and Manheim.
For more information on the event, call Fee’s district office in Denver (open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) at 336-2199 or in Manheim (open each weekday) at 664-4979. Additional information is also available at RepFee.com
