Changes to the Medicare Savings Program

As of March 1, 2024, the Medicare Savings Program no longer has an asset limit!

You may now qualify to have Medicare pay your Part B premium (which is deducted from your monthly Social Security check). Maximum monthly income limits are as follows:

$2,824/month for Individuals

$3,833/month for Couples

Since the asset limit has been eliminated, many people will be eligible to receive a savings. There is an easy application process. The Senior Center will help you apply or answer any questions.

Home Modification Loan Program

The (HMLP) is a state-funded loan program that provides financing to homeowners and small landlords for accessibility renovations to keep a household member with a disability or an older adult in their own home.

This is not a home repair program. Projects funded include ramps, lifts, bathroom and kitchen adaptations, sensory integration spaces, fencing and more.

Loans range from $1,000 to $50,000 (0% interest).

Repayment happens when the property is transferred or sold. The program has very generous annual income guidelines.

Applications can be obtained by calling (978)630-6725 or online at:

This program truly offers a avenue for older people to remain more independent by improving their ability to function more easily at home.
