“Applying for government benefits to support your family member can be a long, overwhelming and confusing process. Maintaining these benefits requires accurate, consistent and timely reporting to the government offices overseeing these support services. Protected Tomorrows has created presentations that will inform you about government benefits, walk you through the application process, and help you maintain the benefits and understand your obligations for reporting and tracking information for the person receiving benefits.”
