For anyone planning to retire, Berkeley Public Library presents a workshop with local wealth advisor George Noceti of Morgan Stanley, on May 28, 2013 at 6:00 pm in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room of the Central Branch, 2090 Kittredge Street. After being told for years that Social Security is "going broke," baby boomers are realizing that it will soon be their turn to collect. But the decisions they make now can have a tremendous impact on the total amount of benefits they stand to receive over their lifetime. Questions boomers are asking include: Will Social Security be there for me? How much can I expect to receive? When should I apply for Social Security? How can I maximize my benefits? Will Social Security be enough to live on in retirement? This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library (www.berkeleylibraryfriends.org). For questions regarding this program, call 510-981-6148. The Central Library is open Monday, noon-8 p.m., Tuesday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday afternoons from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. For questions and accessibility information, call 510-981-6195, TTY 510-548-1240, http://www.berkeleypubliclibrary.org.
