A modest, monthly, tax-free stipend of $2.65 per hour of service, to help offset the cost of volunteering 2.) A monthly reimbursement for your mileage costs and meals 3.) An annual physical check-up 4.) Accident and liability insurance while on duty 5.) Pre-service and monthly training sessions.Senior Companion volunteers must be 60 years of age or older and meet income eligibility requirements.
