Elder Benefit Specialist Program


Trusted. Confidential. Free.
Expert advice for Waukesha County adults 60 and older.

Elder benefit specialists help older adults understand, get, and keep public and private benefits, including health care and programs that help save money. Benefit specialists don’t sell anything and aren’t paid by any companies. Their only aim is to help you identify and apply for programs and health care that will best meet your needs. Elder benefit specialists are certified State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) counselors.
