Senior Law Project


​Legal Aid of North Carolina's Senior Law Project provides free civil legal help to North Carolinians who are 60 years of age or older. There are no income limitations for senior clients, though priority is given to those with the greatest need.

The Senior Law Project helps with wills, powers of attorney, public benefits (Medicaid, food stamps, Supplemental Security Income Program, Social Security Disability Insurance, etc.), abuse and neglect, unemployment compensation, housing (foreclosure, eviction, subsidized housing, repairs, utilities, etc.), consumer issues and wrongful repossession.

The Senior Law Project operates our Senior Legal Helpline, a toll-free hotline available for seniors across the state, and our Benefits Enrollment Center, which helps low-income Medicare recipients find out if they qualify for additional benefits.
