WEBCAST | SSI Overpayment: Walk Through a Case

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

An overpayment of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits occurs whenever an individual receives more money from the Social Security Administration (SSA) in a month than they should have. While the overpayment of benefits can result from a seemingly endless variety of factors, the amount of an overpayment is always the difference between the amount that was received and the amount that was due. Individuals have several options for what they can do when they receive a notice of an overpayment from SSA.

In this webinar, we will explore hypothetical examples to better understand what options an SSI recipient has when they receive a notice of overpayment from SSA. We will also use these hypotheticals to discuss the frequent problems SSI recipients encounter with overpayments, and what steps advocates can take to help tackle these problems.

PRESENTERS
Sam Brooks, Staff Attorney, Community Legal Services
Kate Lang, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

She was instrumental in transitioning two specialty physician practices from paper to electronic health records. She has worked with software systems such as Meditech, Allscripts and Epic in both initial implementation as well as transitioning from one electronic system to another.

WEBCAST | Legal Basics: Dual Eligible Older Adults

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Dual eligible individuals are low-income seniors and people with disabilities who are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. On average, dual eligibles have more chronic conditions and higher health needs than other Medicare beneficiaries, yet they face barriers to accessing care because of their enrollment in two separate health insurance programs. Almost half of the dual eligible population are people of color, and dual eligibles are more likely to be women. Recent initiatives in a number of states have changed the way that many dual eligibles receive their healthcare.

This Legal Basics webcast will cover the following:

  • Provide an overview of the Medicare and Medicaid programs;
  • Highlight particular characteristics of the dual eligible population;
  • Review the common barriers dual eligibles face in accessing care; and
  • Provide an update on integrated programs that serve dual eligible individuals.

PRESENTERS
Amber Christ, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
Denny Chan, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

The webcast will be accompanied by a detailed Chapter Summary with additional information.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.

WEBINAR | Access to Public Benefits for Older Immigrants

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific) | HOST: National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER)
FEE: None | REGISTER

Older adults who are immigrants face unique challenges accessing public benefits. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, SNAP, and housing assistance each have their own set of eligibility rules and restrictions based on a person’s citizenship or immigration status, work history, and sometimes length of residency.

This webinar will provide a basic overview of eligibility for public benefits for older immigrants. We will use hypothetical situations to illustrate how a person’s immigration status and work history affect their eligibility and provide practice tips and resources to use to help your clients access health care and other benefits.

Presenters:

  • Tracey Gronniger, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging
  • Natalie Kean, Senior Staff Attorney, Justice in Aging

The webcast will be accompanied by a detailed Chapter Summary with additional information.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.
