Many adults over 55 need help paying for prescription drugs, health care, utilities, and other basic needs. There are over 2,000 federal, state and private benefits programs available to help! Many people simply do not know these programs exist or how they can apply.
BenefitsCheckUp is a free service by the National Council on Aging that is committed to connecting millions of eligible low-income seniors to benefit programs. If you know someone that might need some “Extra Help” simply go the website: www.benefitscheckup.org. You can do a “Test Case” to see what is available. There are many adults, that these various programs can provide an extra $100 – $200 or more in monthly benefits. This is not “charity”. We all work hard to make these programs available to those in need and it doesn’t cost you anything to check it out!
