Benefit Specialist

Services Provided
A Benefit Specialist is a person trained to help older persons who are having a problem with their private or government benefits. Benefit Specialists are often called "red tape cutters" because they are experts at helping older persons with the extensive and complicated paperwork that is often required in benefit programs.

They help older persons figure out what benefits they are entitled to and tell them what they must do to receive them.

Qualifications
Benefit specialists are continually trained and monitored by attorneys knowledgeable in elder law.
