Benefits CheckUp. A Service of the National Council on Aging

Many older people and adults with disabilities need help paying for prescription drugs, healthcare, utilities, and other basic needs. Ironically, millions of Americans - especially those with limited incomes - are eligible for (but not receiving benefits from) existing State, Federal, and Local programs.

These benefits range from heating and energy assistance, to prescription savings programs, to income supplements. There are many public programs available to Seniors in need if they only knew about them and how to apply for them.

Benefits CheckUp is the nation's most comprehensive web-based service to screen for benefits programs for people with limited income and resources who are 55 and older, or are an adult of any age and disabled.

Benefits CheckUp will also screen you for potential eligibility in special drug programs offered by pharmaceutical companies.

 Benefits CheckUp includes many public and private benefits programs, such as:

  • Prescription Drugs     
  • Energy Assistance
  • Legal
  • Social Security
  • In-Home Services
  • Transportation
  • Employment
  • Nutrition Assistance (formerly the Food Stamp Program)
  • Financial
  • Health Care
  • Housing
  • Tax Relief
  • Educational Assistance
  • Volunteer Services

(A screening will typically take about 20 minutes)
