About

The Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area needs volunteers who are interested in working with seniors and people with disabilities in our Benefits Counseling Program. The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) has counselors in every state who are available to provide one-on-one help with Medicare questions or problems. SHIP is looking for volunteers in the Benefits Counseling Program to perform outreach and learn the complexities of Medicare to successfully counsel consumers. Volunteers in our Benefits Counseling Team should have the ability to get along well with others, a sensitive and caring attitude, good written and oral communication skills and a willingness to learn about Medicare benefits. Please note: Insurance agents, insurance brokers, and financial planners are not eligible to volunteer with the Benefits Counseling program.
