Money Management Program
The Money Management Program is sponsored by the Illinois Department on Aging. Seniors over the age of 60 receiving Community Care Program services or Elder Abuse services are eligible within certain income and assets guidelines. Trained volunteers are supervised and monitored by a Money Management Coordinator. Volunteers are matched with eligible clients throughout DuPage County. Volunteers act as Bill Payers sorting mail, balancing checkbooks and helping access outside resources; Representative Payees work with the Money Management Coordinator to make decisions about clients' money when clients are not able to and are allowed to sign checks; monitors visit clients every three months to ensure the programs integrity and check accounts; and office volunteers assist the coordinator with mailings, filings and phone calls.
