Older Adults Benefits Aide: Federal, State and Civic Assistance Programs

Older Adults BENEFITS AIDE

Assist older adults obtain benefits to maintain their independence!
 

Kenneth Young Center is a non-profit provider of community mental health and older adult services. We provide support services to local older adults, families, and children who are facing crisis and difficult transitions.

As a Benefits Aide, you need to be very comfortable working with Microsoft Excel, Word, and the Internet. You will work with local older adults and their loved ones to explain and assist them in completing State, Federal and civic benefits program applications. We will train volunteers on the benefits application process so you do not have to have prior knowledge of state/federal benefits. However, previous experience is HIGHLY DESIRED! A few key points:

  • Volunteers must be available to perform services during normal business hours.
  • Training is done off-site during normal work-week and may take 2 to 4 days for completion.
  • GREAT opportunity for recently retired professionals.
  • This is a Skill Based Volunteer (SBV) Opportunity.

(Kenneth Young Center is a local, community mental health and older adult services provider. For almost 50 years, we have served people to help them feel good, do better and find solutions. For more information, visit our website at www.kennethyoung.org )
