Yolanda York

Social Security & Medicare Consultant

Yolanda York held the position of Social Security public affairs specialist from 2006 until her retirement in March 2019. During her time as the public affairs specialist she gave hundreds of presentations to large employer groups, private organizations, tax professionals, financial advisors, Medicare agents, military groups, including Wounded Warriors, and trained Social Security Administration employees in customer service.  

Ms. York began working for the agency in 1979 and worked in various capacities during her employment. She has a gift of dissecting even the most complex benefit questions in a manner that is easy to understand (and sometimes humorous), earning her the nick name by those close to her “The Walking Wikipedia for SSA.” 

Since Ms. York’s retirement, she continues to work as an independent consultant serving the community to provide presentations, offer solutions to those in need of assistance, and education regarding the Social Security system. Ms. York is fluent in both English and Spanish.

Ms. York has served as a member of the San Francisco Region Management Association as well as the Hispanic Affairs Advisory Council and Veterans & Military Affairs Advisory Council. Ms. York has been an active volunteer for the Make a Wish Foundation for almost two decades.
