Benefits Connection Center
Many New Mexican’s are not aware that they are eligible for government benefits, or they do no know how to apply.
We help low-income adults connect to government benefits programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy, Medicare Savings Program (QMB), Low Income Energy Assistance Program, Low-Income Water/Solid Waste Credit and Medicaid.
This service is offered free of charge, thanks to grants from the National Council on Aging (NCOA). We work to make the process as simple as possible, cutting through governmental red tape and getting people the services they need. We even help complete all the paperwork!
Adelante’s Benefits Connection Center can screen you for a majority of the benefits available through governmental services. When your Benefits Check-up is complete, you will know what benefits you are eligible to receive, and our team of benefits assistants can help you enroll in the programs you qualified for in the list below.
