The Trumbull Senior Center and Social Services offers CHOICES counseling.

The counselors offer free and objective information, counseling and assistance, enabling one to understand and exercise their rights, access and receive benefits to which they are entitled, and make more informed decisions about quality of life issues. CHOICES is also an excellent Medicare resource for individuals who are “New to Medicare”, for example, just turning 65 years old or eligible for Medicare because of a qualifying illness or disability. Trained CHOICES staff can help consumers navigate life’s stages while reducing the stress and confusion. Counselors do not sell insurance.
