Community Outreach

In addition to partnering with local non-profit and public organizations, WestArk RSVP manages its own programs which provide direct assistance to the community through numerous channels, including Medicare assistance, income tax assistance, and health insurance advocacy.

MEDICARE ASSISTANCE 

We assist Medicare beneficiaries in applying for federal Low-Income subsidy and the Arkansas Medicare Savings Programs, aiding Medicare beneficiaries in choosing Medicare Part C and Part D plans and counseling new Medicare beneficiaries. 

INCOME TAX

We assist by preparing and electronically filing federal and state tax returns for those ages 60+ through the Tax Counseling for the Elderly program (no income limit) and for all others with incomes below $57,000 through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.

Advocacy

Partnering with the Arkansas Insurance Commission and Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), RSVP members serve as SHIIP Advocates. They volunteer to educate consumers, unravel bureaucratic mazes, and submit fraud complaints. Find out more at Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP)
