Suffolk County, NY - July 17 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker announces the Senior Advocates summer schedule. Senior Advocates will be visiting various locations across the county throughout July, August, and September to educate seniors on benefits they may be eligible for and assist them in applying for those benefits.

Legislator Anker encourages senior residents to attend one of the scheduled Senior Advocates meetings to receive free benefits counseling.
