Over 55 and Need Help with Paying for Perscriptions, Food, Utilities and Other Basic Needs?

This is heartbreaking to think about that there are older people in America who need this kind of help. But I am glad there are agencies such as National Council on Aging that will help. According to NCOA:

“Many adults over 55 need help paying for prescription drugs, health care, utilities, and other basic needs. There are over 2,000 federal, state and private benefits programs available to help. But many people don’t know these programs exist or how they can apply.”

Thank you to the EngAGE blog for sharing this information and I am passing it on. If you or someone you know needs this help you can go to NCOA to find out how to apply for benefits.

    Even with my health insurance plan, my prescription drugs give me a big monthly whack, Deborah. And early in the year, before the deductible is met … Add my wife’s prescriptions, and … It’s very scary. Thanks for this post.

      Glad to pass this information on and hope you can benefit from it. 🙂 It is very hard for many people these days and I was glad to see that this organization gathered together all the info to help people all over the country.
