About

Join us and become a Volunteer in 2017.

Become a Senior LinkAge Line volunteer counselor.

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).

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 are interested in becoming a Medicare counselor and have questions now please contact me. Please contact Lee Swenson, Volunteer Coordinator with the Senior LinkAge Line at 1-800-333-2433, Ext. 81019.
