"Welcome to Medicare" Seminars
Understand what you need to know.
Make Informed decisions.
SMAA offers Seminars to help you sort through your Medicare options—and to help you enroll. If you are turning 65 in the next year, consider registering to attend a "Welcome to Medicare" Seminar to help you maximize your benefits.
While there is no fee for this service, we welcome a suggested donation of $35 to attend, which includes a one-on-one follow up session. No one will be turned away for the inability to make the suggested donation. Volunteers and donations help SMAA offer this service.
Registration is required. Call 396-6500 in the Portland area or
1-800-427-7411 to sign up or send an online form. For Sanford, please see below for phone numbers.
- Seminars are offered each month and individual sessions are available every week in Bridgton.**
- Seminars are two hours long, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and some evenings.
You can trust SMAA because we do NOT sell insurance policies.
