Benefits Assistance

How Can We Help?

Benefit specialists help answer questions and solve problems related to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, other health insurances and public benefits for:
  • People age 60 and older
  • Adults (age 18-59) with a physical or cognitive disability or a mental illness.

Depending on the individual's circumstances, benefit specialists can help you to:
  • Understand, access and apply for public benefits
  • Apply, appeal and advocate for Social Security Disability
  • Access health care
  • Learn about Social Security work incentives and rules
  • Navigate the process and represent you when benefits are denied
Services are free and confidential.
