Reentry: Advocating for Formerly Incarcerated Older Adults
As the prison population rapidly ages, older adults reentering our communities after incarceration face significant barriers to their ability to reintegrate and live securely. In particular, older adults of color are disproportionately represented in the reentry population, and, due to structural discrimination, are at risk of being unable to access the health and economic security programs that could help them live securely in the community.

Legal services attorneys and elder rights professionals are uniquely situated to assist these older adult clients. This training will equip advocates with knowledge of issues that older adults reentering our communities face in accessing public benefits, health care, and housing and will provide strategies for advocating on behalf of their clients.

This training will address:
• Strategies for accessing housing in reentry
• Understanding Medicaid and Medicare limitations for older adults in reentry
• Navigating common Social Security eligibility issues for older adults in reentry

Presenters:
• Jennifer Kye, Senior Attorney, Justice in Aging
• Georgia Burke, Director, Medicare Advocacy, Justice in Aging
• Trinh Phan, Director, State Income Security, Justice in Aging

Closed captioning will be available on this webinar.
