BenefitsCheckUp.org – An Important Tool for Seniors

Millions of older Americans are eligible for, but may not be receiving, benefits from existing federal, state and local programs that help seniors pay for prescription drugs, health care, utilities and other basic needs, according to the National Council on Aging . 

An extremely valuable service that I just recently became aware of is BenefitsCheckUp.org.  This free Web-based service, developed and maintained by NCOA, is the nation’s most comprehensive way to screen for benefits programs for seniors with limited income and resources.

BenefitsCheckUp.org connects seniors with more than 1,550 public and private benefits programs from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, such as: 

– Prescription drugs
– Nutrition (including Food Stamps)
– Energy assistance
– Financial assistance
– Health care assistance
– Social Security assistance
– Housing assistance
– In-home services
– Tax relief
– Transportation assistance

To use this free service for you or a loved one, simply go to http://www.benefitscheckup.org and click on “Get Started.”
