April is National Volunteer Month

Make a difference by helping others navigate Medicare, join our team!

Medicare can be complicated, but as a trained volunteer you can help by answering questions and providing personalized guidance to members of your community as they enroll in Medicare for the first time, review plan options, or troubleshoot problems. SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program) provides unbiased support to Medicare beneficiaries and their families so they can make informed decisions about their care and benefits.

Become a volunteer, help people in your community navigate Medicare. For some, it offers a chance to give something back to their community. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. In Florida your local SHIP program is SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders).

During the month of April, we’ll be celebrating our SHINE volunteers. We look forward to sharing more in our May newsletter.
