Raising children takes a lot of money. There is some goods news. Many people are not aware that there are “public benefits” programs available which could help many grandfamilies pay for food and electricity or other monthly expenses including health insurance. The AARP Foundation has established an outreach program and has a new online tool called “BenefitsQuickLINK” and this tool can help adults who are over 50 years old find out if they or the children in their care qualify for any of the 15 benefits included in the tool.
To read the article about the work that AARP is doing and more details on these benefits, go to: Help for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
To go to the online tool to determine if you or the children might be eligible, go to: Benefits QuickLINK
