Senior Information and Assistance
Senior Information and Assistance is a statewide program that provides information and referral services over the phone and in the office. Information specialists link the caller/visitor to organizations that provide service to older persons, send printed material about services and/or assist in completing applications for benefits and services.
Call the Senior Information and Assistance Office in your county for information about services that are available. If your loved one lives outside Maryland, check the Eldercare Locator to locate resources. To see what financial benefits you may be eligible for go to Benefits Checkup.org.
