Benefits 101


Our Benefits 101 webinar training series offers an introduction to the core benefits relevant to seniors and younger adults with disabilities.

This series is intended to help train new benefits counselors on these core programs, and refresh seasoned counselors' knowledge, so they can best help their clients (especially those with limited incomes) access these critical benefits.
