License plate sticker discount available for seniors

DeKALB – Seniors in DeKalb County can buy their license plate stickers for $24 by filling out a Benefit Access application.

Shari Hanson of the information and assistance department at Elder Care Services, 1701 E. Lincoln Highway, said Benefit Access is an ongoing program with the Illinois Department of Aging and Secretary of State's Office.

The program, which used to be called Circuit Breaker, is available for seniors older than age 65 and those receiving disability benefits. The recipients also must provide proof that their 2016 income is not above $27,610 for a single person or $36,635 for a couple.

Residents can fill out an online application through the Illinois Department of Aging website. They also can receive help filling out the application at Elder Care Services, Hanson said.

Those eligible for the program will receive a two-year voucher. Elder Care Services also will assist seniors in renewing their vouchers, Hanson said.
