2024 Outstanding Senior Nomination

Older Americans Month is a time for our nation to celebrate older adults and their contributions to our communities. Each May, this annual observance offers a special opportunity to learn about, support, recognize and celebrate our nation’s older residents. The national theme for Older Americans Month 2024 is “Powered by Connection”, which recognizes the profound impact that meaningful relationships and social connections have on our health and well-being.

To celebrate Older Americans Month, the Warren County Aging Services Advisory Council annually conducts a county-wide search for an older adult to honor with the Mary Louise Christine Outstanding Senior Citizen of Warren County Award. We seek your help in identifying a Warren County senior whose service to their community has benefited other residents to the extent that you feel they are deserving of this distinction.

National Slam the Scam Day - March 9, 2023

On National Slam the Scam Day and throughout the year, we give you the tools to recognize Social Security-related scams and stop scammers from stealing your money and personal information. Share scam information with your loved ones. Slam the Scam!

Recognize the four basic signs of a scam:

  1. Scammers pretend to be from a familiar organization or agency, like the Social Security Administration. They may email attachments with official-looking logos, seals, signatures, or pictures of employee credentials.
  2. Scammers mention a problem or a prize. They may say your Social Security number was involved in a crime or ask for personal information to process a benefit increase.
  3. Scammers pressure you to act immediately. They may threaten you with arrest or legal action.
  4. Scammers tell you to pay using a gift card, prepaid debit card, cryptocurrency, wire or money transfer, or by mailing cash. They may also tell you to transfer your money to a “safe” account.

Ignore scammers and report criminal behavior. Report Social Security-related scams to the SSA Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
