Because Martin Luther King Jr. Day was held earlier this month, the Social Security Administration wants to make sure they commemorate the holiday for the full month and provide service to others. One way they are doing that is by getting the word out about Extra Help, a program for those who need Medicare Part D, but may not have the funds to pay for it. Jack Myers, Public Affairs Specialist with the SSA, said Social Security can't enroll people into Medicare Part D, but can assist people by helping them pay for it.

Myers said the program is available to those with limited income and resources, and it can help assist people with premiums, deductibles, and co-pays.

Myers appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
