Many seniors find themselves overwhelmed and unable to manage bill paying and budeting and find themselves with bills going unpaid and debts mounting. With just a few hours a month, you can provide peace of mind for seniors experiencing these limitations.
Our Money Management volunteers help with bill paying or serve as representative payers. Volunteers are insured and work one-on-one with an eligible senior. Together they establish a schedule for writing checks, track income and expenses, and reconcil the checkbook to the bank statement.
Volunteers may assist in opening a checking account at a local bank, if appropriate, and arrange for social security checks to be deposited directly. Through these services, Money Management volunteers enable seniors to maintain an independent life and empower seniors to be in charge of their finances.
Monthly reporting is required; Bill Payers attend quarterly meetings to review client cases, discuss issues and updates. They are also invited to our annual volunteer celebration.
