The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Become a Senior LinkAge Line volunteer Medicare counselor and help people in your community.
We are looking for volunteers who are willing to become trained Medicare counselors.
Counselors help Medicare consumers, their families and caregivers better understand Medicare options by providing information and referrals regarding resources. Counselors will also help Medicare consumers enroll in programs that could assist with health insurance costs and reduce prescription drug costs.
If you are interested in volunteering please contact us. Upon a successful background check and the completion of the three-day training class volunteers will receive certification through the Minnesota Board on Aging as a Health Insurance Counselor with the State Health Insurance and Assistance Program (SHIP). Our next volunteer training class will be Tuesday through Thursday, September 18 - 20, 2018 in Carlton, MN. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator with your questions or to request a volunteer application.
Volunteers will receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance and outreach to seniors.
If you have questions please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at the Senior LinkAge Line(r) at
