Benefits + Entitlements Assistance

JASA social workers are trained and up-to-date regarding the many public programs available to assist seniors. After conducting individualized, comprehensive assessments to identify needs, our staff can help determine an individual's eligibility for specific programs, as well as assist in securing benefits and entitlements under programs, including:

  • Food stamps
  • Medicaid
  • Medicare
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE)
