Many seniors approaching retirement age have not built up adequate savings in their Social Security accounts. By finding employment before taking SS withdrawals, seniors can build up accounts and ensure a healthier retirement payments when the time comes.

(HCAP) administers the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) for low-income seniors who meet the program’s eligibility requirements: 55 or older, unemployed, resident of O‘ahu, with an income at 125% of the federal poverty guideline. It’s a federally-funded program under Title V of the Older Americans Act.

Program participants are also eligible for a subsidized medical examination (up to $50 per year) and can earn Social Security credits during their placement in a job in thier community.
