Dear PSA/Program Director,

Inflation continues to rise across the country, leaving millions of older adults who are living on fixed incomes facing tough choices: Do I pay for food, medicine, or rent? For those who are struggling to make ends meet, there are billions of dollars in benefits programs that can help—but few eligible older adults know they exist or how to apply.

The National Council on Aging (NCOA), a trusted national nonprofit advocating for older Americans since 1950, has created radio and TV PSAs in English and Spanish to connect older adults to benefits that can help them pay for food and other daily essentials such as prescriptions, utilities, transportation, taxes, and more.

The radio and TV PSAs feature BenefitsCheckUp.org and BuscaBeneficios.org, NCOA’s free confidential websites that have helped millions of older adults access billions in benefits.

Sincerely,

Jean Van Ryzin
Senior Director, Communications
National Council on Aging
