Hello....will you all be hosting a Social Security class this year? If not, would you know who facilitated the class so I could reach out to them? THANKS so much for your assistance.

Hello-
Most of the Social Security classes that are held in our branches are community organizations or businesses that are using our meeting rooms. We do not a list of those organizations. I'm sorry I cannot be of more assistance.
