Bizzarro to sponsor free Social Security workshop

ERIE, March 24 – State Rep. Ryan A. Bizzarro, D-Erie, will host a free Social Security workshop for area residents approaching retirement age at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 31 at the Millcreek Township Building, 3608 W. 26th St.

The event is designed to educate residents about how to navigate the Social Security System, apply for benefits, decide when to start receiving benefits and prepare for retirement, among other things. Bizzarro will be joined by a financial representative from a local insurance company to help answer attendees’ questions.

“My office has heard from so many people who find themselves unsure of how to apply for Social Security benefits when the time comes,” Bizzarro said. “I want to open the conversation up to area residents so that they can get their questions answered from a trained professional. We want to make sure that those who’ve earned these benefits receive them.”

No registration is required. For more information, please call Bizzarro’s office at (814) 835-2880 or visit 1101 Peninsula Drive, Suite 209 in the Peninsula Plaza.
