Addabbo invites LiveOn NY to host virtual presentation on benefits for older adults this March
State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. is once again partnering with LiveOn NY this year to bring a free webinar to his constituents to explain the types of benefits seniors are eligible for and how they would be able to apply for them.
The live Zoom webinar will take place on Monday, March 13 at 11 a.m. Those interested in joining the Zoom meeting can follow this link:
The Meeting ID is: 881 3305 9260; and the Passcode is: 456582.
During the webinar, representatives from LiveOn NY will provide information about their organization and what they do, they will discuss the unfortunate stigma and misconceptions around receiving benefits, review all of the benefit programs that are relevant to older adults — which includes discussing what these benefits address, their eligibility criteria and the application process — and finish with a brief Q&A from the audience. The representatives will also give out their contact information so anyone interested in reaching out can get in touch with them to speak about their personal situation.
“With the cost of inflation raising the prices of so many products, and with many seniors living on a fixed income, it is making it more difficult for these seniors to afford the rising cost of living in New York City,” Addabbo said. “Organizations like LiveOn NY are able to help seniors find out if they are eligible for any of the available benefit programs and how they can apply. I want to thank LiveOn NY for their continued partnership and for helping my constituents with virtual webinars and in-person events.”
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 these benefit programs during this meeting, seniors are encouraged to contact LiveOn NY after the webinar to talk about their specific situations and to find out if they qualify and how to apply.
