2 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, MAY23, 2014 UPCOMING EVENTS Older Americans By RAY VIGIL/Social Security Public Affairs Specialist in El Paso, Texas Each May, groups and orga- nizations around the nation join in celebrating Older Americans Month.

Rather than driving or taking public transportation to a local office, you can use our secure, free online Services to handle much of your Social Security business. With the amount of time you save, you'll have more time to spend with the grandkids or have time for a brisk walk around the neigh- borhood or local park. Before going for that walk, though, visit www.socialsecurity.gov. Whether you already receive benefits or you're just starting to think about retirement, it's a great time to benefit from My Social Security open a my Social Security ac- count. What's my Social Security? It's a secure online account that allows you immediate access to your personal Social Security in- formation.

Like a my Social Security ac- count, you can use it as many times as you'd like. The Estima- tor lets you change variables, such as retirement date options and future earnings.
