Many older people and adults with disabilities need help paying for prescription drugs, healthcare, utilities, and other basic needs. However, millions of Americans – especially those with limited incomes – are eligible for, but not receiving benefits from, existing state,federal, and local programs.
Benefits CheckUp is the nation’s most comprehensive web-based service to screen for benefits programs for people with limited income and resources who are 55 and older, or are an adult of any age and disabled.
Benefits CheckUp will also screen you for potential eligibility in special drug programs offered by pharmaceutical companies.
Begin your free and confidential screening! (A screening will typically take about 20 minutes.)
