Developed in conjunction with the AARP Money Management Program, Illinois Volunteer Money Management is a financial services program that assists low income older persons who have difficulty managing their personal household budgets, paying bills, keeping track of banking records, intervening with creditors, completing medical forms, and handling other issues related to personal finances.
The program matches trained volunteers with older persons who need help with tasks such as organizing bills, writing checks, balancing a checkbook, intervening with creditors and completing medical forms. Volunteers also serve as Representative Payees, persons designated by the Social Security Administration to manage the monthly benefits of certain beneficiaries.
The Case Coordination Units screen, train, match and supervise the volunteers. The Illinois Council of Case Coordination Units coordinates the project and monitors financial transactions.
