About

Remaining in their own homes is critical for our seniors and you can help! Compassionate, detail-oriented Mandarin and Cantonese Bi-lingual volunteers, using their every-day life skills, are needed to visit seniors and help with the timely payment of monthly bills. (Manhattan and Queens). Clients make all their own financial decisions but need hands-on help with bill paying tasks such as reviewing mail, organizing bills, writing out checks for the client to sign, reconciling check register to bank statements. Volunteers are screened, fingerprinted, undergo background check and receive detailed procedural instruction and coaching. The commitment is for one year, one or two visits a month for approximately 2-6 hours per month. Please call 212-602-4195 or email:volunteerbpp@aging.nyc.gov. The Bill Payer program is operated by NYC Department for the Aging.
