Statewide Senior Legal Helpline
The Virginia Poverty Law Center is proud to announce the Statewide Senior Legal Helpline is live and running!
This is a toll-free line offering legal assistance and advice for Virginians aged 60 or over. Topics covered by the Senior Legal Helpline include:
- Long term care issues
- Public benefits, such as Medicaid and SSI
- Guardianship and guardianship alternatives
- Age discrimination
- Financial exploitation
- Abuse and neglect
- Some limited consumer issues
The Senior Legal Helpline is made possible through a contract between VPLC and the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services. Funding for this contract comes from the Administration on Community Living Grant's Model Approaches to Statewide Legal Assistance Systems.
