What will you do to make a difference when you retire?

The Guilford County Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), hosted at Senior Resources of Guilford in Greensboro, is seeking volunteers to become Medicare Counselors.

SHIIP is part of the North Carolina Department of Insurance, and the Department of Insurance provides online and in-house training. You will need to attend four daytime trainings yearly, so if you are a student or a full time worker, you may not be able to meet that requirement.

The counseling you provide will be cost-free, objective, and unbiased. Our counselors cannot have insurance licenses, recommend plans, or tell clients what to do. They provide clients with ample information for them to understand Medicare and make informed choices for their health care needs. And our counselors often help people who are struggling to find ways to afford their medications.

This is an enormously rewarding opportunity where you get to use your mind and your heart in the service of others and make a difference in their lives. More so when you help those "who have to chose between food and medicine", or stop taking their medications because they can no longer afford them.
