Join us and become a Volunteer in 2017.

Become a Senior LinkAge Line Medicare counselor and volunteer to help people in your community.

Help Medicare consumers, their family and caregivers, understand Medicare options; connect them to programs that help with Medicare costs, provide education on health and long term care insurance, provide one-on-one assistance reviewing Medicare options, statements, claims and forms, and help educate people on public and other programs. Provide information and referrals to local resources and help to access prescription assistance programs for Minnesotans of all ages.

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 three-day training class will be held in Duluth from 9 AM to 4 PM on Monday and Tuesday April 17 and 18 and the following Monday, April 24, 2017.

Volunteers will receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance and outreach to seniors.

The support area is the seven county Arrowhead Region of Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake and St. Louis; however volunteers will work in and around their own community.
