Meeting Agenda For April 2015

April 7 - What’s New with Social Security?

Our speaker this evening will bring you up to date, especially as to all the information that is available on their web site. Do you have a Social Security account on the web site? Having one is a great advantage and you’ll find out why.

It will be beneficial to you if you set up an account prior to the meeting - it’s free, of course, and secure so no worries there. Go to: click on “My Social Security.” I have found the Social Security Administration is very accomplished insofar as making it easy to get information and keeping their records up to date and accessible and most of all, easy to negotiate.

Most members of our group are probably already receiving Social Security benefits. If you are, please don’t think this presentation won’t be of interest or help to you. I’ll be surprised if you don’t learn something that will someday be helpful.

April 14 - Dine with Tugnet

Meet your friends and enjoy dining with them.

It’s lovely when our meembers come together in a chosen restaurant and enjoy eating together. Plus, it creates a donation for our treasury. Now tell me, what can be easier than this?

April 21 - Information, Security and Related Topics

PC Maestro, otherwise known as Elliott Stern, returns with a new presentation. You will remember him from his presentation on the importance of maintaining a back-up of your data, especially, and your entire computer as well. He has some updates related to that previous talk that he is anxious to share with us.

In addition, he has now accumulated information for us on various topics and we are delighted to welcome him back. There is so much to learn and it is great when someone else does the research. Don’t you agree. So be sure to come hear Elliott at this meeting. You’ll be glad you did.
