Topics to be covered at the Town Hall will include:

  • The general security situation in Ukraine, including recommendations for U.S. citizens to stay safe and build contingency plans;
  • The role of the Embassy in emergency situations – what we can and cannot do;
  • The Embassy’s warden system, and planned improvements to ensure Embassy communication with you in emergency situations;
  • Voting in the 2016 general elections, including how to vote from overseas;
  • A Q&A with the head of the Social Security Administration’s European operations, discussing issues related to receiving your benefits while in Ukraine.

As a bonus, if you would like assistance creating an online “MySocialSecurity” account, experts will be on hand beginning at 2 p.m. at America House to assist you. Please let us know in advance if you plan on using this service.

This event is open to all U.S. citizen adults currently in Ukraine, so we encourage you to spread the word to those who may be interested in attending.
