Please take the time to read my article below showing how today's economy is hurting the elderly.  This article contains valuable information that everyone should be aware of. 

Each year, Labor Day gives us an opportunity to recognize the invaluable contributions that working men and women make to our nation, our economy and our collective prosperity. It gives us a chance to show gratitude for workers' grit, dedication, ingenuity and strength, which define our nation's character. ~Thomas E. Perez

Please note that our office will be closed on Monday September 3rd in observance of Labor Day.  Beginning after Labor Day, we will go back to our regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5pm).
