Veterans benefits focus of seminar

Regency Residence will host a free veterans benefits seminar from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at 6711 Embassy Blvd. Local veterans advocate Mark Larson will shed light on the little-known U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance pension program, which provides eligible veterans and surviving spouses up to $2,582 per month, tax-free. The VA estimates that 100,000 people are eligible, but many are unaware these benefits exist. To be eligible, a veteran must have served at least 90 days with one day during a declared war, among other requirements. This free seminar is designed to both educate veterans and families as well as help them navigate the sometimes difficult application process to ensure they are receiving the benefits they deserve. To RSVP, or to learn more, call Regency Residence at (727) 849-9335.


Libraries to teach computer skills

Pasco County Libraries will bring laptop computers to the Greater Trilby Community Association Center once a week to help people find and apply for jobs, apply for food stamps and other services, set up and check e-mail and to learn basic computer skills. The computers will be available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays through Dec. 21 at the community center, 37452 Trilby Road. On some dates, representatives from local agencies will be on hand to provide information about health care, social services and income tax assistance. All information and services are free. For information check out the library system calendar at or call Nancy Fredericks (352) 567-3576.
