Disability Benefit Specialist

The Aging and Disability Resource Center has a Disability Benefit Specialist to help adults with disabilities who are encountering problems with private or government benefit programs. The Benefit Specialist is highly knowledgeable in the following areas: Medicare, Food Share, Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and Medical Assistance. Benefit Specialists are trained and guided by attorneys who specialize in disability benefits law. They are often called "the red tape cutters", and their mission is to help people figure out what benefits they are entitled to and what they must do to receive them.

A Benefit Specialist is an advocate who can act on behalf of an individual with other parties involved. Many of the benefits issues faced by people with disabilities can be very complex. A phone conversation can oftentimes be sufficient to provide information and guidance. A office appointment may be necessary to review paperwork and to examine all opportunities of support and assistance. 

To speak with the Disability Benefit Specialist who aids people with disabilities, ages 18-59, please call:
920-674-8734 or toll-free 1-866-740-2372 or send us an EMAIL.
