AMAC Foundation Expands Social Security Advisory Services

Several AMAC Foundation representatives have earned certification as National Social Security Advisors, qualifying them to counsel retirees and pre-retirees on questions and issues pertaining to Social Security. The training preceding the qualification exam equips these Advisors to provide guidance to clients on the many Social Security options available, and enables them to provide a trusted service to the public. Certification is accredited through the Ohio-based National Social Security Association (NSSA).

These six individuals - Arlene Sharp, Eileen Cook, Sharon Kleczka, Russell Gloor, Ken Baron, and Gerry Hafer - are available to handle questions submitted to the Foundation.

“The certification of our staff members is critical to our mission of supporting and educating America’s seniors,” reports AMAC President Dan Weber, “and we believe that by providing credible, unbiased information to people in, or aging into, Social Security is an important part of what the Foundation does. And, since the Foundation is a tax-exempt organization relying solely on contributions from the public to operate, there is no charge for this valuable service.”

Public Seminar Series

Since our 2014 launch, the AMAC Foundation has operated a seminar series designed to present topics of interest and importance to America’s seniors. This initiative continued in the 2018-2019 period over 60 separate sessions presented. Topics covered ranged from benefits-related seminars to workshops on technical issues important to older Americans. Nearly 2,000 seniors have attended these free seminars, and the feedback has been tremendous. Furthermore, each of these sessions gives us the ability to make additional members of the public aware of AMAC and the AMAC Foundation.
