Jewish Family Service of MetroWest Offers Money Management for Older Adults

Do you or someone you love need help balancing checkbooks or reading mail? How about budgeting or writing checks? The Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ (JFSMW) Money Management program offers financial guidance to older adults in Essex County.

This free program is run by fully trained volunteers and is funded by Essex County’s Division on Aging. Our goal is to help older adults continue living independently for as long as possible.

To enroll, you must be aged 60+, reside in Essex County, and struggle to manage your finances, read mail or pay bills. JFSMW can match you with a trained volunteer money manager to assist with:

Setting up a budget and organizing bills

Reviewing and processing monthly expenses

Preparing checks for signature

Applying for benefits programs to lower monthly expenses

The program’s coordinator, Taylor Ruszczyk, said of the program: “Our dedicated volunteers are committed to helping older adults in our community live full, independent lives. We believe that money management can help them feel more confident and secure in managing their finances.”

To learn more or enroll, contact Ruszczyk at 973-637-1742 or [email protected].
