ELDER BENEFIT SPECIALISTS
The Aging and Disability Resource Center has one full-time and one part-time Elder Benefit Specialists to help the elderly who are encountering problems with private or government benefit programs. They are highly knowledgeable in the following areas: Medicare, Food Share, Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), SeniorCare and Medical Assistance. Benefit Specialists are trained and guided by attorneys who specialize in elder and disability benefits law. They are often called "the red tape cutters", and their mission is to help people figure out what benefits they are entitled to and what they must do to receive them.
A Benefit Specialist is an advocate who can act on behalf of an individual with other parties involved. Many of the benefits issues faced by seniors and people with disabilities can be very complex. A phone conversation can oftentimes be sufficient to provide information and guidance. A home visit or office appointment may be necessary to review paperwork and to examine all opportunities of support and assistance.
