Are your senior clients coming to you with immigration-related questions? Recent events have left many people understandably confused and anxious. Need clarification on an immigrant older adult eligibility for safety net programs like Medicaid or SSI? Join Justice in Aging as we host a special immigration law webinar, Older Adults who are Immigrants: Access to Healthcare and Other Public Benefits, with our partners from the National Immigration Law Center. Intended for an audience who work with low income seniors but who are not familiar with immigration law, this webinar will cover basic topics, like:
Different types of immigrants in our communities;
Rights and protections for immigrant seniors;
Immigrant senior eligibility for SSI, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; and
Resources for individual assistance
This free webinar will also highlight some of the recent events affecting immigrant seniors and how they may be affected by changes in government policies.
