The Benefit Specialist Program is a program designed to assist individuals age 60 or older by providing broad access to benefits, entitlements and legal rights to persons throughout the county. The goal is to promote and preserve the autonomy, dignity, independence/freedom, and financial security of older persons. This is achieved by having the benefit specialist work closely with a supervising attorney who can provide strong legal advocacy, training, technical support and representation beyond the local level. The benefit specialist may assist with Medicare, Medicare Part D, Social Security, Medical Assistance, Homestead Tax Credit, Senior Care Applications, and other public benefit programs.
