JOIN US FOR AN ONLINE WEBINAR focused on the transition for families that occurs when a parent retires, begins receiving Social Security retirement benefits, ends employer-based commercial health insurance, and enrolls in Medicare. We are pleased to have Attorney Svetlana Uimenkova of the Disability Law Center present about this transition and its impact on the adult disabled family member’s social security and health insurance status. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar, a fact sheet, and an AFAM email address where registrants can send questions in advance of the webinar. This Webinar is being co-sponsored by Advocates for Autism of Massachusetts (AFAM) and the Autism Alliance. We also thank The Insurance Resource Center for Autism and Behavioral Health for its assistance.
