*A big THANK YOU to Laura Killian our Elder Benefit Specialist*
June 11-17 is Elder Benefit Specialist Appreciation Week!
We would like to thank Laura Killian, our Elder Benefit Specialist for the incredible work she does.
Laura is a skilled advocate who helps older adults in Douglas County get, understand, and keep benefits, including health care, disability income, and programs that could save them money.
Benefit specialists help adults get services worth an average of over $2,000—but the peace of mind and support they provide is invaluable.
Average state-wide monetary impact:
Per case: $2,428
Per benefit specialist: $1,250,081
In total for 2022: $224,764,524
Peace of mind of working with an unbiased, expert advocate: Priceless
Thank your local benefit specialist for the incredible work they do today! https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/benefit.../counties.htm
