Savvy Social Security Planning: What Baby Boomers Need to Know to Maximize Retirement Income
(Tue. 2 May, 2017 11:00 am - 1:00 pm)

Brian Beaulieu with Allen Insurance and Financial will discuss social security planning for baby boomers and what they need to know to maximize retirement income. Space is limited, preregistration is appreciated.

Social Security is far more complicated than most people realize. The decisions baby
boomers make now can have a tremendous impact on the total amount of benefits they stand
to receive over their lifetime. Baby boomers often want to know whether Social Security will still be around when they get to retirement age and whether it will be enough to live on. They also want to know the level of benefit they can expect to receive and how they can maximize these benefits.

To help baby boomers better understand the Social Security system, this workshop, will cover:
*   5 factors to consider when deciding when to apply for benefits
*   When it makes sense to delay benefits -- and when it does not
*   Why you should always check your earnings record for accuracy
*   How to estimate your benefits
*   How to coordinate benefits with your spouse
*   How to minimize taxes on Social Security benefits
*   How to coordinate Social Security with your other sources of retirement income

The views expressed in this program do not necessarily reflect those of Southwest Harbor Public Library. Preregistration is suggested. Please call the Library at 244-7065.

Addiction: Treatment, Recovery, and Prevention
(Wed. 10 May, 2017 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Wednesday, May 10 at 6:00. Dan will review current treatment methods, the potentials for recovery, and the essential role of prevention.

Acadia Family Center is Mount Desert Island’s only licensed outpatient center for treatment of alcohol and other drug use, addiction, and related mental health disorders. In addition, the Center provides prevention and education services to MDI and its surrounding communities.

Clearly, the epidemic of drug use and addiction in Maine and nation-wide constitutes a public health crisis requiring a substantial increase in these services. Indeed, the ultimate prevention of alcohol and drug addiction will depend on the education of our children, friends, and neighbors.
