South Brunswick Senior Center
Office on Aging
Dear Center Members,

We did it! Starting next week we can begin to eat out in restaurants (albeit outside), shop in retail shops on June 22nd (watch out Marshall's I've missed you!), and move toward a new us! Being diligent about social distancing and wearing our masks however is something we cannot let slide! All the staff and I can't wait to have you back, healthy and well!

Speaking of returning to the senior center; the number one question I have received over the past few weeks (no surprise) is when we will reopen? As of today, I still don't know the answer to that question. What I do know is that when we do reopen, we will have put into place a multitude of safety precautions so that you feel comfortable being here. We will be implementing our protocols using guidance from the CDC, the Governor's office, our township administration and other officials. As we get closer to an opening date we will keep you in the loop so that you are well informed.

Though our doors are closed and the building is still empty, we are here for you! Just call or email and let us know how we can help you. A friendly chat, how to join our virtual programs, meal delivery, resource and referral, help with Medicare and more. We care about you and want you to know it!

If you haven't joined our FACEBOOK group you are welcome to if you are a member of the senior center or meet the criteria to be a member: 55+ and reside in South Brunswick.


AARP Tax Preparation Assistance
Beginning Monday, June 8, AARP will be available to assist you with your tax preparation. This program is completely virtual, meaning you have to prepare your own taxes through a computer and an AARP tax aid volunteer will assist you every step of the way on the phone. This is not face to face help.

AARP has partnered with Turbo Tax enabling free filing if you financially qualify.

Please click here to sign up but note this link that offers assistance for virtual tax aid assistance will not go live until tomorrow- Monday, June 8th but if you want to sign up for preparing your own taxes without help from volunteer tax aids you can do so now.
The IRS has extended filing until July 15, 2020. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out.
My very best,
Caryl
