   SENIORS ENCOURAGED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF BENEFITS CHECKUP
 
            (Newton, NJ) The Sussex County Department of Human Services, Division of Senior Services encourages seniors and caregivers to take advantage of the BenefitsCheckUp® service offered by the National Council on Aging. The national organization sponsors a website, www.benefitscheckup.org that offers free on-line screenings to determine a senior’s eligibility for 2,000 federal, state and local programs that can help pay for utilities, food, housing and other basic needs.   The web-site also provides a link to Caring.com, which offers expert advice, practical information, easy to use tools and person to person support for caregivers.   Individuals who do not have access to a computer or the skills required to navigate the program may contact the Division of Senior Services at 973-579-0555, Ext. 1224 to make an appointment to meet with a staff person who will assist with the process.
