my Social Security

55+ Tech Expo

Diana Varela, Public Affairs Specialist (PAS) Silver Spring MD, participated in the 55+ Tech Expo held at the Holiday Park Senior Center in Wheaton, Maryland. Over 100 attendees visited the Social Security display where they inquired about retirement benefits, survivor benefits, Medicare, the Prescription Drug Program, Extra Help with Medicare Part D, and other related issues. Diana promoted my Social Security and spoke about the convenience of being able to conduct post-entitlement transactions online. Diana also spoke to attendees about myRA and conducted referrals to other agencies for beneficiaries to apply for the Qualified Medicare Beneficiary program (QMB) and Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary program (SLMB).
