Senior Benefits Foundation Providing Help to New Jersey Seniors
According to organization CEO Randall Putala, "Ms. Mueller's article is incorrect on many key points. She was sent copies of our New Jersey and Florida licenses, yet she went ahead and published the article with a statement that we were not licensed. This is incorrect and needs to be retracted. "
"Ms. Mueller incorrectly reported that the Senior Benefits Foundation is not registered in the State of New Jersey, when she was already in possession of a copy of our official New Jersey license," according to Putala. "She also incorrectly stated that we are not licensed in the state of Florida, when again – she was sent a copy of our Florida license," he said.
Of key concern, according to Putala, is the fact that Ms. Mueller never obtained a copy of the organization's 40-page "Complimentary Guide to Understanding Medicare and Social Security." "Had Ms. Mueller read our Guide or at least glanced through it, she would have seen that we do not sell any products or represent any companies," he said.
According to Putala, "our sole purpose at SBF is to help assist seniors that are confused by the federal government's complex array of rules and regulations regarding Social Security and Medicare. We do not sell anything, and we don't charge for our services," he said. "Perhaps people should contact Ms. Mueller directly for advice, since she has expressed her belief that we are ripping seniors off," he said.
"We provide a valuable service, and we have hundreds of glowing testimonials from the many people we have serviced during our 3-year existence," Putala said. "Perhaps the Star-Ledger can also perform this service at no cost to area seniors," Putala said, "proving that they have the same desire to help area seniors understand these complicated programs." Per her article, Ms. Mueller can be reached by email at Bamboozled@NJAdvanceMedia.com, on Twitter @KPMueller, or by phone at 1-888-782-7533.
