Senior Citizens

The following information is for Senior Citizens. Please contact our office for assistance with any questions or problems you may have.

Government Aid

For information on government aid available for seniors, visit's Government Aid for Seniors guide, where you will find information on housing, employment, nutrition, and health care. 

Social Security and Medicare

Our office can help you with determining Social Security benefits, as well as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicare eligibility.

Medicare Resources

My offices can also assist with Medicare questions. Recently, we held a Medicare open enrollment Tele-Townhall that covered important information for Medicare beneficiaries. This information is now available online and can be found below. Please contact any of my offices if you need additional assistance.

Do you need more information on the Medicare program? Go to the Medicare Frequently Asked Questions page.
