    Senior Health Insurance “Medicare Education, Choices, and Assistance”

    November 1st from 1-3pm

    Senior Health Insurance “Medicare Education, Choices, and Assistance”

    Healthcare is one of the most important decisions we make and it’s so imperative we have a solid grasp of the options prior to making a choice. This is especially true for seniors when it comes to Medicare and the many diverse choices and options that you’re faced with in the system. Whether you’re turning 65 and faced with initial enrollment or already have a Medicare plan and are wondering if there’s something better based on your present needs, it’s important to fully understand your choices. You receive information from many sources, but in many cases that can lead to further confusion. We are offering a seminar about Medicare basics, updates, recent changes, and available assistance. The seminar will be presented by John Pitarra Jr. and James Fernstorm of Senior Health Insurance.


    JUST IN!!


    The Town of Groton is accepting applications for its Small Cities Housing Rehab Loan Program. This loan would provide financial assistance to rehabilitate and renovate housing units occupied by income eligible individuals or families with no out of pocket costs.
    These interest free, deferred payment loans would be available to repair/replace roofs, plumbing, public water hook up, electrical, heating system replacement, siding and window replacement, and general rehabilitation and renovations needed to upgrade the Town’s housing stock. Projects such as family room additions, decks, etc. are not permitted under this program.

    Although specific income eligibility is based on household size, a household of two with income less than $52,600, or a household of four with a gross annual income below $65,700 would be eligible for program participation. Eligible applicants must be current on all property taxes.
