PSR will shred old Medicare cards

In an effort to promote and further its mission of advocating, advancing and achieving independence for the aging community, Piedmont Senior Resources Area Agency on Aging (PSRAAA) is collecting and shredding seniors’ old Medicare cards as the new cards arrive to Medicare clients in the area.

PSRAAA is collecting old Medicare cards, which will be securely shredded, at its eight Friendship Cafes across Amelia, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway and Prince Edward counties.

The agency is also collecting them at its Farmville office at 1413 South Main Street in Farmville between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Shoppes at College Park.

“Seniors should not throw away their old Medicare cards when they receive their new ones,” said PSRAAA Executive Director Justine Young, “as the cards contain seniors’ Social Security numbers and dates of birth. If these cards are simply thrown away, this information could be compromised.”

That’s why the agency is collecting the cards and shredding them. For more information, call PSRAAA at 434-767-5588 or email PSR@PSRAAA.org.
