Social Security and Medicare Presentation at Sugar Land Branch Library

Andrew Hardwick.

Andrew Hardwick, a Metropolitan Public Affairs Specialist for the Social Security Administration, will present a “Social Security/Medicare Workshop” on Monday, January 14th, from 6:30  to 8 pm, in the Meeting Room at the Sugar Land Branch Library, located at 550 Eldridge.

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, and has won numerous communication awards. He is a graduate of Brigham Young University with a master’s degree in psychology.
