To assist area seniors and their families with the upcoming Medicare open enrollment period, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is hosting a Medicare Information Session with AARP on Thursday, Aug. 20 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Aurora Public Library-Eola Branch, located at 555 S. Eola Rd in Aurora.
“I encourage residents to learn about the different Medicare plans available to them and their loved ones,” Kifowit said. “Even if you’re not turning 65 this year, understanding how Medicare works can help you prepare for the future.”
Medicare expert Courtney Hedderman from AARP Illinois will join Kifowit to explain the options offered under Medicare. She will also provide one-on-one assistance to those with questions about enrolling for the first time or changing plans. Residents who care for seniors or assist with financial decisions are also invited to attend. The Open Enrollment Period this year is from October 15 to December 7.
