As we age, it’s important to be aware of the benefits available to seniors, such as financial assistance and health coverage options. At Buckalew Financial Services, we specialize in helping seniors navigate these resources and find the right coverage for their needs.
One important benefit available to seniors is Medicaid. Medicaid provides low-cost or no-cost health coverage for eligible individuals, and can be especially useful for seniors on a fixed income. Another option is Medicare, which is a federal health insurance program for people over the age of 65. Medicare includes several different parts, such as hospital insurance and prescription drug coverage.
Beyond healthcare, there are also financial assistance programs available to seniors. For example, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides food assistance for low-income individuals and families, including seniors. Additionally, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) can help with energy costs during the winter.
Social Security is also an important benefit for seniors, providing retirement and disability benefits to eligible individuals. The Social Security Administration can provide help with online services, such as applications for benefits and calculating retirement benefits.
