Drive time radio program will offer answers to listeners' Social Security questions, says AMAC
The Association of Mature American Citizens' AMAC Foundation will offer answers to questions about Social Security on a new program to be aired on WFAX AM and FM in Falls Church, VA. The daily half-hour show will also be available on WFAX's streaming service on its Web site.

The projected launch date for the show, Senior Talk: Q&A About Social Security, is Monday, March 4, 2019.

WFAX is a well-established Christian talk radio station, with a 70-year broadcasting history and a reach extending to millions of residents in Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland. And, via the Internet, the station's programming reaches the entire nation.

"The ability to reach a national audience online and a local audience in the Washington metro area gives us a great opportunity to share information about Social Security," Foundation president Dan Weber commented. "This will really enable us to help more seniors by providing critical guidance at a time when they need it most."

Weber noted that the Foundation's highly acclaimed Social Security Advisory Service handles an average of 300 requests for assistance each month. "The Service will now be made available directly millions of listeners in America's seventh largest radio market," Weber added.

Gerry Hafer, the AMAC Foundation's Executive Director, explained that the broadcast will originate from the Foundation's Lady Lake, FL office, with remote staff members joining the daily broadcast regularly. "Our intent will be to handle specific questions from the public, but also to package the broadcasts with educational information about Social Security and its intricate rules and regulations."

Hafer said that the recorded daily broadcasts will be archived and eventually made available for on-demand access through the Foundation's main website.

Foundation Scheduled to Participate in Orlando PRIME Expo 2019
Representatives of AMAC, Inc. and the AMAC Foundation are scheduled to participate the Orlando Sentinel Media Group's PRIME Expo 2019, a free one-day event featuring interactive exhibitors, live entertainment. The full-day Expo will be held Saturday, February 23, at the Orange County Convention Center, and will feature expert speakers focusing on the latest topics in health and wellness, financial planning, travel, relationships and much more. The Foundation had a presence at last year's edition of the expo - titled "Successful Aging" - and had the opportunity to interact with thousands of visitors, explaining who we are and what we do.

PRIME Expo 2019 is sponsored by Alert Today/Alive Tomorrow, Florida's Pedestrian & Bicycle Focused Initiative, and is expected to draw attendance upwards of 15,000 visitors to the Convention Center. From our perspective, we view our participation as a way to further expand the public's knowledge of our brand. Last year, for example, we were able to introduce hundreds of folks to AMAC, and we were able to provide on-the-spot answers to many questions about Social Security basics.
