The Division of Human Resources is hosting a free workshop where employees have the opportunity to learn more about Social Security. Guest speaker and Social Security representative Jacqueline Weisgarber, who has more than 14 years of experience, will answer questions such as:

  • When are you eligible to receive retirement benefits?
  • How does early retirement affect your benefits?
  • Do you qualify for disability, survivors, and spouse benefits?
  • How do you get the most from your benefit?
  • What is the future of Social Security?
  • When should you file for Medicare?

Attendees are encouraged to go to to create a “my Social Security” account and print out their Social Security Statement before attending the workshop.

Two sessions will take place: Monday, March 29, at 2 p.m. and Thursday, April 1, at 10 a.m. Both sessions are the same information and will take place via Zoom.
