San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2007
Elder Care Advisor Esther Koch offers assistance in navigating through the basics of the Social Security, Medicare, and Medicare Prescription Drug programs as she presents: "What You Need to Know Before You're 65: For Your Parents and You" at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on November 6th.
For many baby boomers, the time for qualifying for the primary government programs targeted to seniors is just around the corner and their parents are already beneficiaries. But for most, a true understanding of these benefits remains shrouded in confusion. Learn the basics of these programs and the realities of what you can expect and, more importantly, what not to expect. Come hear what every boomer needs to know and plan for - for their parents and themselves.
