Have Questions? Need Help? Call a Benefit Specialist (920) 448-4300

Benefit Specialists assist persons with a wide variety of benefits and programs that focus on relieving financial stress. They provide information and help determine if persons qualify. They will assist in connecting people to appropriate benefits and explain how to apply. Call the ADRC (920) 448-4300

There are two types of Benefit Specialists:

Elder Benefit Specialists serve persons age 60 years old and older.

Disability Benefit Specialists serve persons age 18 to 59 who have physical or developmental disabilities, mental health and/or substance abuse issues.

Benefit Specialists are advocates who can help “cut the red tape” when trying to navigate complex benefit programs.
They:
  • Provide information about programs and help you determine if you are potentially eligible.
  • Explain application processes, helping you understand what is needed and what you can expect with different benefit programs.
  • Advocate with you to help solve problems related to public benefits, insurance companies, medical providers and other benefit-related issues.
  • Review denied benefits and advocate for you when it's determined there has been a potential error.
  • Help you connect with an appropriate agency or other source of assistance.
Many of the benefit issues which seniors and adults with disabilities face are very complex. A Benefit Specialist assesses the situation, provides unbaised information and gives you options so you are able to make an informed choice. Often a phone conversation can be sufficient to provide information and guidance. If not, a Benefit Specialist is available for office appointments or home visits.


Looking for a Elder Benefit Specialist outside of Brown County Wisconsin? You'll find more information about the program and where to find it in other parts of Wisconsin from this website at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
