Reduce your family's financial burden with government benefits.


What You Should Know

On a fixed income, every penny counts. Your loved one paid into government programs, so make sure they get the help they're entitled to now. Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid may be just the beginning. Depending on income and assets, your loved one may be eligible to receive subsidized food benefits, prescription drugs, phone plans, utilities, and more. Benefits vary by state, so use these links for best results. They may help with medications, food, utilities, legal, health care, housing, in-home services, tax prep, and transportation.

Steps To Take

  • Use AARP’s QuickLINK (see link above) to find out what benefits are available.
  • Use BenefitsCheckUp, a free service of the nonprofit National Council on Aging (see link above).
