The 2018 Benefits Checklist for Older Adults is an essential resource for anyone who advises or assists older adults in New York State – from lawyers, accountants, and financial advisers to social workers, nurses, and doctors. Professionals involved in shaping elder care law and policy or overseeing services for the elderly will also find the Benefits Checklist useful.

This easy-to-use two-page document lists the major health and income programs potentially available to older adults in New York and defines the benefits provided, eligibility criteria, and income and resource limits. The Checklist also identifies the government agencies that process applications and provides contact information. Produced by the Sadin Institute on Law and Public Policy, the Checklist is updated annually.

While some of the information in the Checklist is specific to applying for benefits in New York State, elder care professionals in other states will find information of value and may want to adopt the format for use in their own state.
