The Council on Aging’s Money Management is a Fee-for-Service program that helps Seniors and At-Risk adults who are having difficulty with their personal financial affairs.
Money Management services help seniors remain in their homes longer by ensuring that bills get paid on time, checks are deposited, and taxes are paid. This helps to avoid eviction, foreclosure, utility shutoffs, and other debt issues.
