Personal Budgeting Assistance (PBA)
PBA volunteers help prolong independent living in the community for older adults who have difficulty managing their financial affairs. They may for the first time suddenly be faced with handling the household finances, or now have a health condition that impedes their ability to read statements or write checks. Trained volunteers help older adults with their personal budget, writing checks, and organizing bills. Those who have been helped report improved peace of mind, stabilized finances, and being assisted with solving financial problems.
