As noted in our Annual Report(s), the AMAC Foundation’s mission is “to help protect and ensure the financial security, health, safety, and social lives of current and future mature Americans, and to help Americans navigate the bewildering array of decisions they need to make.” The various services we provide and the activities we conduct are evidence of our commitment to this mission, as is our constant search for valuable and supportive information to share with our constituency. We recently found just such a resource produced by the NCOA and the N4A that we feel will be of interest to our readers. Enjoy!

The National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and the National Council on Aging (NCOA) are committed to helping you gain information and access to public and private benefit programs so that you can live with dignity and independence for as long as possible. We developed the You Gave—Now Save campaign to help spread awareness of the many forms of assistance available to older adults who sometimes find it difficult to pay for basic needs such as health care, food, housing and transportation.
The centerpiece of the campaign is the Guide to Benefits for Seniors, a publication we hope you will find useful as you explore the options to help you meet the costs of daily living. Assistance may come in the form of a voucher, discounts for goods, and free or reduced-price services. These resources are offered through federal, state and local benefit programs and nearly all are available nationwide.
