The Book is Out!
The Foundation's most recent publication is now out, and our staff has been busily distributing the first editions to Congressional Offices across the country. As part of a move to increase awareness of the AMAC Foundation brand, the book is being placed in the offices of all House of Representative districts and Senate Offices for their reference, along with an invitation to make use of our Social Security Advisory Service to handle constituent requests for help in navigating the complexities of this vital senior program.

As we reported before, the approach we've taken with this book differs from previous releases, in that we've made it essentially an instructive, almost textbook like. Each section will present, in understandable terms, Social Security's rules, and follows these rule definitions with actual “Ask Rusty” Q&A publications that illustrate real-life examples of the rules in action.

The book is available for sale to the general public as well. If you're interested in obtaining a copy, simply email us at the Foundation office ([email protected]). The price is $24.95 plus tax and shipping.

"Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly."

We're Participating in an online event this month
On Wednesday, October 15, the Tampa Free Press will be launching its 2020 Senior Lifestyle Expo, an online event showcasing products and services geared towards those ages 50+. Our Foundation will be a participant in this event, designed to acquaint the Free Press senior audience with the many businesses available to serve them. Our Social Security Advisory Service is one of those services that has strong appeal for this demographic, so we appreciate the opportunity to use this event as another way to get the word out about who we are and what we do.

So, starting on 10/15, go to and check us out!

Webinars continuing
October 14, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM - Understanding Advance Directives

Most folks have a general understanding that advanced directives are legal documents through which they can specify what health-related actions should be taken on their behalf if illness or incapacity renders them unable to make decisions for themselves. While the general concept is known, there is widespread misunderstanding about their use in today's patient/physician interactions. This workshop is designed to explore the meaning and types of Advance Directives and provide guidance and resources for their use. For this session, we welcome Chantal Rupert, RN and Patient Care Administrator for Vitas Healthcare and Christopher Shepherd, Volunteer Services Manager for Vitas Healthcare for this informative discussion.

Please note that we are offering these seminars as virtual (ZOOM) presentations. To register, please contact the Foundation office (by phone 888-750-2622 or email [email protected]). Find out more at
