ADvancing States is pleased to announce the release of a new report on Benefits Access and Enrollment During COVID-19: Findings from State Aging and Disability Agencies. This report provides a summary of changes that states have made to their systems for connecting individuals to benefits and explores state agency changes, challenges, and opportunities related to benefits access and enrollment during the COVID-19 crisis. The experiences of state aging and disabilities agencies in connecting older adults and persons with disabilities to benefits can inform current and future efforts to support individuals during major disaster situations.
