Foxx to host benefits workshop for seniors


MOCKSVILLE — Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., has announced that she will host a benefits workshop for seniors on Oct. 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Davie County Senior Center, 278 Meroney St., Mocksville.

“As the open-enrollment period for Medicare approaches, this workshop will include timely information for beneficiaries and their families,” said Foxx. “Seniors in North Carolina’s 5th District should make plans to join us and learn more about opportunities to help them have a healthier and happier retirement.”

The open-enrollment period for Medicare beneficiaries will start on Oct. 15 and end on Dec. 7. This is the only time during the year, except in unique circumstances, when current Medicare enrollees are able to make changes to their existing coverage.

Local organizations as well as state and federal agencies will be available to answer questions and provide information on the benefits they have available for seniors, including the Social Security Administration; Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; North Carolina Housing Finance Agency; Davie County Sheriff’s Department Fraud Unit; Davidson County Community College’s Davie Campus; Forsyth County Senior Services; Davie County Silver Sneakers; and American Red Cross.

For more information or to RSVP, contact the Clemmons District Office at 1-866-677-8968.
