In order to help inform seniors on how to apply for important benefit programs, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. is partnering with LiveOn NY to bring an informational webinar to residents across his district.

The live webinar will take place via Zoom, on Thursday, February 25, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Those interested in taking part in the webinar must register by following this link:

During the webinar, representatives from LiveOn NY will give information about the organization and what they do, discuss the stigma and misconceptions around receiving benefits, review all of the benefits that are relevant to older adults—which includes discussing what the benefits address, eligibility criteria and the application process—and finish with a brief Q&A and contact information.

“I am happy to once again bring the services of LiveOn NY to my constituents, providing my seniors with valuable information on the benefits available to them,” Addabbo said. “Unfortunately due to COVID, we are not able to bring LiveOn representatives directly into local senior centers to discuss their benefits, but we always find a way to adjust. Thank you to LiveOn NY for continuing to service the communities even during this difficult time. I encourage everyone to partake in this informative webinar and learn about the benefits they may be eligible for.”

In the past, some of the benefits LiveOn NY can help constituents register for include SNAP, SCRIE, HEAP, the Medicare Savings Program, Medicaid, and property tax exemptions. While LiveOn NY cannot assist participants in registering for benefits during this meeting, seniors are encouraged to contact LiveOn NY to talk about their specific situations.

“Are you receiving all the benefits that you're eligible for? Find out about benefits that can help you pay for food, freeze your rent, lower your property taxes and pay for your Medicare Part B premium at this informational webinar with Senator Addabbo,” said Kim Lerner, Director of the Benefits Outreach Program with LiveOn NY.
