The Turning 65 events are aimed at helping people new to Medicare understand the process and the options available to them. The free seminars include information about Medicare Part D, Medicare supplements and Medicare Advantage plans. 

"We receive calls every day from people new to Medicare that need help," Hamm said. "These seminars are a great way to learn more about the program."
