County Clerk O’Connell Meets With AARP

            (Mineola, NY)   Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell recently joined a meeting of the Bellmore-Merrick AARP Chapter # 4258 at Mepham High School to speak with members about the services the Clerk’s office provides to residents.  Among the services discussed was the recording of Veteran Certificate of Release and Discharge (DD-214) papers free of charge.  As an incentive for veterans to take advantage of this service, Clerk O’Connell talked about the Nassau Veterans Recognition Program which offers them discounts at participating businesses throughout Nassau County for recording their discharge papers.

            Clerk O’Connell also advised the residents about mass mailing solicitations for costly deed retrieval services, some of which cost 1000% more than the Clerk’s Office fees, and to disregard such offers.  She cautioned homeowners about other types of scams the Clerk’s Office has seen and initiatives undertaken to assist and protect homeowners against predatory scams.
