The Whole Person has partnered with the National Center on Aging (NCOA) to connect older adults and people with disabilities with benefits programs that can help pay for health care, medicine, food, utilities, and more, with BenefitsCheckUp®, a comprehensive online tool to connect older adults and people with disabilities to benefits.
Benefit Enrollment Centers, such as The Whole Person (TWP), help low income Medicare eligible seniors and people with disabilities identify and apply for benefit programs. We'll make it easy to see if you may be eligible—and then help you find out where to apply online or how to get help from our Benefits Counselor.
