BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Ballston Spa Public Library is offering a free Social Security Information program on Thursday, November 3 from 6-7 p.m. for individuals ages 55-70.

The event is being presented as a community service by Guest Speaker John Kalil, a Social Security Claiming Strategist and the President of Retirement Solutions, LLC. The program is open to the public and free to attend.
