Municipal Agent for the Elderly

Municipal Agent for the Elderly

The Municipal Agent for the Elderly program was established in 1972 by the Connecticut
State Legislature in order to assure that elderly persons in each town have an officially
appointed representative who is responsible for providing elders with information and
assistance on services and benefits.

In accordance with the General Statutes of Connecticut Volume 2 Title 7 Chapter 97
Section 7-127b, the municipal agent for the elderly shall (1) disseminate information to
elderly persons and assist such persons in learning about the community resources
available to them and publicize such resources and benefits; (2) assist elderly persons in
applying for federal and other benefits available to such persons; (3) submit written reports
annually covering the period extending between July 1 and June 30 to the chief elected
official, chief executive officer, legislative body and committee or commission on aging of
the municipality, if any, and to the Department of Social Services on the services they have
provided, the needs and problems of the elderly and any recommendations for municipal
action with regard to elderly persons.

The position of Municipal Agent for the Elderly is incorporated into the Senior Services
Coordinator’s position. Information, referral, and assistance is available by contacting the
Russell Mercier Senior Center Monday through Thursday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:3o p.m.
p.m., and Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at 860-228-1700.
