About

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.

We are looking for volunteers who are willing to become trained Medicare counselors.

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 receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance, outreach, and one-on-one counseling in your community. We can hold Office Hours at a site in West Duluth and Downtown Duluth and possibly even Hermantown as needed.

If you have questions please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at the Senior LinkAge Line(r) at 1-800-333-2433, Ext. 81019.
