ARE YOUR CLIENTS MISSING OUT ON FINANCIAL SUPPORT??
There are seniors in our province who are missing out on getting additional financial support through the Guaranteed Income Supplement. If you are receiving the Old Age Security Pension ( OAS) check to see if you qualify and please pass this along to other seniors. Check to go to the Service Canada site and apply whether or not you think you qualify.
FINANCIAL AND LEGAL ISSUES:
Seniors are looking for information and support around financial issues such as individual income tax, government benefits, and how to access assistance with medical needs.
For some seniors the dollar is not stretching far enough these days – support around employment and debt management are two other resources to consider.
Seniors in NL have issues meeting their basic-needs such as food (food banks), furniture, and help with utilities.
Seniors are looking for legal resources like how to get a lawyer or obtain information on matters such as wills, power of attorney, and advanced healthcare directives.
