Both the Queen Anne and Magnolia branches of the Seattle Public Library will play host to “Medicare Made Clear” workshops next month.

Jean Cormier of Cormier Insurance Company will give an overview of the different parts of Medicare, what each part covers, and how they work during four sessions throughout September. Cormier — a Medicare specialist who is not connected with the federal program — will be at the Magnolia branch (2801 34th Ave .W.) on Sept. 29 from 1 to 2:30 p.m., and the Queen Anne branch (400 W. Garfield St.) the following afternoon from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

Free and open to the public, the workshops will cover the different ways recipients can receive their benefits and the pros and cons of each (and approximate cost), along with enrollment and eligibility guidelines.

Registration is not required, but space is limited, and attendees are asked to arrive early to ensure a seat.

Along with the sessions in Queen Anne and Magnolia, Cormier will also be at the Ballard branch (5614 22nd Ave. NW) on Sept. 8 from 1 to 2:30 p.m., and at the Greenwood branch (8016 Greenwood Ave. N.) from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 15.
