One in three older Americans is economically insecure—lacking the resources needed to meet basic food, housing, and medical needs.

For these vulnerable older adults, who may have few opportunities to increase their earnings, public and private benefits can be a critical tool to help them free up limited income.

Yet millions of seniors who qualify for this help are not enrolled in programs that can help them pay for food, prescriptions, medical care, and household utilities.

What are these benefits and how can we increase knowledge and access to them? That’s the question we’ll cover in this webinar.

Speaker: Brandy Bauer, Communications Manager, Economic Security at NCOA
