At Justice in Aging we believe everyone has a right to age in justice, free from threat of homelessness, hunger, and lack of health care.
We use legal tools combined with our expertise in Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to ensure low-income older adults across the country can meet their basic needs, and remain engaged and in our communities. To understand how all the various health and economic security programs work together to help older adults meet their basic needs, read our issue brief and fact sheet.
We do not provide direct legal services to individuals. Instead, we work for systemic change by training direct service providers, pushing at the state and federal level for better policies, and filing class action lawsuits. If you are an individual seeking legal help, find more information about connecting to local legal services and other resources here.
