Baby boomers invited to learn about Medicare

The Union staff

An informational meeting next Monday is especially aimed at “baby boomers” born in 1948 and 1949. Local Medicare educator David Unterman will explain Medicare’s strong and weak points, how and when to sign up, some key dates and deadlines, and several different ways to get insured for the gaps in Medicare.

“Turning 65 is a great birthday,” Unterman said. “We’ve paid taxes for years, and Medicare is a valuable benefit we’ve earned. You need to understand its strong and weak points, despite the myths and misleading advertising you’ll hear. The first key is to get straight information. The next is to understand your own situation and take timely action as needed.”

Folks who just want to refresh their knowledge are also welcome.

The session Monday takes about an hour and a quarter and includes time for questions and discussion. It runs twice, at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m., in the meeting room of Perko’s Restaurant on Plaza Drive opposite Rite-Aid drugstore. Free snacks and drinks are provided. To reserve a seat, which is helpful but not required, call 530-272-4650. Folks can also call to ask general questions or about future meetings or to meet privately or at other times.
