From food assistance like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to utility bill discounts, there are many benefits available to older adults with low income. Benefits Enrollment Centers (BECs) are agencies that can help you find and enroll in all the different programs you qualify for. That way, you know you’re not missing out on valuable benefits that can help you save money. 

BECs have trained benefits counselors whose job is to learn more about you, figure out what programs you qualify for, and walk you through the application process. This includes helping you gather the documents you need to apply for different programs. These centers are supported by the U.S. Administration for Community Living through a partnership between the National Council on Aging and the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation.
