Federation Helps Seniors Get What They Deserve: Nearly $1 Million in Benefits by ProQuest


"People don't apply for benefits for a variety of reasons," said [Brian Gralnick]. "They may not know they're eligible, or even if they do know, they don't know how to apply or are embarrassed to ask for help."[Nora Dowd Eisenhower] said that the economic downturn's negative effect on Philadelphia, coupled with a large number of people locally who are eligible but not enrolled in public benefit programs, made Philadelphia an ideal place to launch this campaign. "The community has a high number of seniors who want to stay in their own homes," said Eisenhower. "One of the keys to this is ensuring that they're enrolled in all the benefit programs for which they're eligible. Delivering this combination of benefits to the individuals is an influx of income to the local community""BDT hopes that BenePhilly will continue to serve as a resource for the clients and staff of Federation's extensive service network," said [Ginger Zielinskie]. "We look forward to continuing the cooperative efforts to help members of the Jewish community access valuable benefit programs. Older Philadelphians can still call BenePhilly at 1-800236-2194."
