American Assn of Daily Money Managers American Association of Daily Money Managers
This is a growing association of professionals who assist people who have difficulty managing their personal monetary affairs. This often results from physical changes due to the aging process (limited vision, arthritis or other conditions which limit the ability to write), or because of Alzheimers Disease or other cognitive impairments. With members now in most states, you can check to see if a member is near you by clicking on the Find a DMM link in their Web site.
 
Benefits Checkup Benefits CheckUp (Financial Assistance)
Millions of older adults are eligible for federal and state benefits, but are not receiving them, including assistance to pay Part B premiums for Medicare benefits. It's unfortunate because these programs can help with housing, meals, transportation, health care, prescription drug costs, legal services and utility bills, just to name a few.The National Council on the Aging, a non-profit charitable organization, created Benefits CheckUp to help older adults quickly and easily find out which benefits they qualify for, and how to get them (many are available regardless of income). This is a free service and is completely confidential; it does not require your name, address, phone number, Social Security number, or any other information that could be used to identify you.Simply complete the online questionnaire. In a few minutes, you'll have a list of programs for which you or your loved one most likely qualifies, including phone numbers and addresses. It also includes step-by-step instructions on how to apply for the benefits.
