Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut

Incorporated in 1974 under the Older Americans Act, the mission of the Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut (AASCC) is to empower adults to remain as independent and engaged as possible within their communities through advocacy, information, and services.


BenefitsCheckUp is free service of the National Council on Aging (NCOA), a nonprofit service and advocacy organization in Washington, DC.

Many adults over 55 need help paying for prescription drugs, health care, utilities, and other basic needs. There are over 2,000 federal, state and private benefits programs available to help. But many people don’t know these programs exist or how they can apply.

BenefitsCheckUp asks a series of questions to help identify benefits that could save you money and cover the costs of everyday expenses.
