Due to age and lack of interest, the Gray Panthers of Berkeley and the East Bay ceased functioning as of the end of 2016. The office at Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library was shut down.

However, a new group is trying to revive the East Bay Gray Panthers.

A meeting will be held September 27 2017, 1:30-3pm at North Berkeley Senior Center.

Phil Hutchins is the speaker. Subject: Economics and Housing -- The Bay Area Crisis and Beyond.

A slate of nominees for a new board will be finalized, with hopes for elections at the October meeting.

at least until a new board is installed.

Social Security Guides for Disabled

Here is some onformation from The Simple Dollar, a website dedicated to conducting data driven and unbiased research about topics that can help make an impact in people's lives. This information may be valuable for those who are living with disabilities.

The Simple Dollar recently investigated the Social Security Disabilities Benefits and in the course of their research, found that most people who have become or already living with disabilities are not fully aware of the benefits and resources that are available to them.

So, their team spent weeks reviewing the US Social Security Administration's documentation to develop their 2016 Disability Benefit Guide.

This guide breaks down qualifications and the application process, as well as a provides a calculator that can help estimate monthly and annual benefits.
