The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Middle Alabama Area Agency on Aging (M4A) will host the third annual Blooming Benefits Day.

The event will be held at First United Methodist Church in Clanton on April 30 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

An important goal of the event is to streamline eligibility determinations and breakdown the barriers of access to services. The services included are for older adults, caregivers and people with disability of any age and their families.

Residents will have access to information regarding Social Security benefits, veteran’s social services and support, dental services, disability advocacy and support, employment services and support, non-profit housing, free legal services, hearing screenings, Medicare and extra help information, farmers market vouchers, medications assistance, food assistance and the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for free Wal-Mart gift cards.

Spanish translation services will also be offered at the event.

The Blooming Benefits Day is offered in partnership with Veteran’s Administration, Social Security Administration, Telamon Corporation, Alabama Non-Profit Housing, Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind, Dental Creations and many other community organizations.

Funding for the Middle Alabama Area Agency on Aging is from the Alabama Department of Senior Services and the Administration on Aging.
