Press Release

ONTARIO, CA – Today, Rep. Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) hosted a listening session for seniors and workshops focused on Social Security in Rialto and Fontana.


“So many seniors in my district have expressed concern over the future of the Social Security system and what that means for them,” said Torres.  “Since April is National Social Security month, I wanted to come to them to have a frank conversation about how I’m working to protect and strengthen Social Security and to address any issues they might have in obtaining their Social Security benefits.”


Today’s meetings took place at the Heritage Park Senior Apartments in Rialto, at the Dino Papavero Senior Center in Fontana, and at The Orchards Active Senior Living in Fontana.  At the meetings, Torres answered questions about issues affecting seniors and took part in workshops to make sure seniors are getting the most out of their Social Security benefits.


“I believe that after a lifetime of hard work, our seniors deserve to be able to retire and live with dignity,” continued Torres.  “That means making sure they understand the benefits to which they’re entitled and fighting to protect those benefits for them and for generations to come.” 


Seniors who were unable to participate in today’s events are encouraged to call Torres’s Ontario office at (909) 481-6474 with any questions or concerns or to address issues they may be facing with the Social Security Administration or other federal agency
