Boost Your Budget Week

Event Description: 

Each April, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) leads an annual campaign known as "Boost Your Budget Week" to educate low-income older adults on money-saving benefits such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid, and Medicare Savings Programs. More than 17 million Americans age 65 and older struggle with rising housing and health care bills, inadequate nutrition, lack of access to transportation, diminished savings, and job loss. The Boost Your Budget week ran from April 15 through April 19 and features tools and resources in NCOA’s Boost Your Budget Toolkit to help ensure that more people can age well, regardless of income. NCOA’s Center for Benefits Access supports 90 Benefit Enrollment Centers (BECs) across 39 states to help low-income seniors and younger adults with disabilities access programs that pay for health care, food, and more. See BECs for more information.
