Social Security & Medicare Presentation at George Memorial Library

Andrew Hardwick

Andrew Hardwick, a Metropolitan Public Affairs Specialist for the Social Security Administration, will present a workshop on “Understanding Social Security & Medicare” at George Memorial Library in Richmond on Saturday, April 27, beginning at 1:00 pm, in Room 2A of the library.

Hardwick will provide an overview of the Social Security program. Learn how and when to apply for retirement benefits and Medicare, and the differences between Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D. He will also discuss survivor and disability benefits and retirement planning. Learn how early retirement affects one’s benefits and how to get the most from one’s benefits. Hardwick will also demonstrate online tools that are available on the Social Security Administration’s website.

Those attending this workshop may want to set up a “my Social Security” account online at and print out a Social Security Statement before arriving at the class so that Hardwick may address any questions they have.

Hardwick has worked in public affairs for the Social Security Administration since 2001, and has won numerous communication awards during that time. He is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a master’s degree in psychology.

This presentation is free and open to the public. People aged 60 to 65, as well as their family members and caregivers, are encouraged to attend. For more information, call George Memorial Library at 281-342-4455 or the library system’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
