Help Your Friends and Neighbors Save Money

Navigating through the maze of public benefit programs can be difficult and confusing. Many people don’t know what assistance is available – or how to gain access to it.

AARP offers online tools that take the guesswork out of the process for every state in the US. Now you can easily find programs that help save money on health care, medication, food, utilities, children’s health costs and more.

It only takes 15 minutes so get started with AARP Benefits QuickLINK.

While this is the fastest way to review the benefits programs in Maine, you can also call dial Maine’s 2-1-1 for information about a huge range of social services.

Do you have any neighbors or friends who could use your help to access the QuickLinks site? Perhaps they are not online at all, or maybe they have trouble understanding the potential benefits.

With just a little of your time, you could be helping them to:

  • Find a local program for the Food Benefits programs commonly known as SNAP
  • Find programs to help pay for prescriptions for people with or without Medicare
  • Find easy-to-read guides that show where to find and apply for the most important public benefits

Outreach and service in our local communities is an important part of AARP’s mission. The fact is that many of our friends and neighbors are facingmounting financial difficulties. Even a relatively small financial benefit can make a huge difference for those struggling to make ends meet.

Each of us has the potential to make a big difference in someone’s life, and helping a neighbor or friend use the AARP Benefits QuickLINK is just one way to do that.
