What is a Benefit Specialist?

Disability Benefit Specialists helps people between the ages of 18 and 59 and Elder Benefit Specialists to help people over the age of 60, who are encountering problems with private or government benefit programs. They are highly knowledgeable in the following areas: Medicare, FoodShare, Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), SeniorCare and Medical Assistance. Benefit specialists are trained and guided by attorneys who specialize in elder and disability law. They are often called "the red tape cutters", and their mission is to help people figure out what benefits they are entitled to and what they must do to receive them.

A Benefit Specialist is an advocate who can act on behalf of an individual with other parties involved. Many of the benefit issues faced by seniors and people with disabilities can be very complex. A phone conversation can often times be sufficient to provide information and guidance. A home visit or office appointment may be necessary to review paper work and to examine all opportunities of support and assistance.
