EAD Meeting - Generations Magazine - February-March 2013The Elderly Affairs Division (EAD) was recently awarded one of 20 Benefits Enrollment Center (BEC) Grants nationwide from the National Council on Aging. The BEC grant supports the development of person-centered, community-based system to provide outreach, and to help seniors and younger adults with disabilities with limited means to enroll in public and private programs that help pay for prescription drugs, medical care, food and utilities. These programs include:

  • Low Income Subsidy for Medicare Part D
  • Medicare Savings Program
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

EAD is an active participant in identifying and enrolling eligible persons into these programs. While most individuals are already enrolled, there are still many who do not know about these programs or may need assistance in applying.
