The Mental Health Association of Westchester (MHA) is a community-based not-for-profit committed to recovery-focused mental health services through advocacy, community education and direct services. We are recognized as the leader in Westchester in providing person-centered, trauma informed services that involve collaborating with each individual to achieve his or her goals.
MHA offers a range of treatment and support services that are person-centered, recovery-oriented, and individualized to promote recovery and wellness. MHA reaches out to families and individuals by providing services in their homes, nursing homes, homeless shelters and other community sites.
We have an exciting new opportunity for a Full-Time Benefits and Entitlement Specialist.
The Benefits and Entitlements Specialist is an advocacy service which will help consumers apply for and keep benefits such as Medicaid, Food Stamps and SSI. Although it is expected that a majority of the work will take place at our headquarters in Tarrytown, the Benefits and Entitlements Specialist should be able to work in the community if needed to help facilitate certification and benefits.
The person in this position should have considerable experience with benefit applications either by having assisted others with the application process or as a worker administering benefits. The candidate must have experience with Medicaid or other entitlement application and recertification procedures, rules and regulation. A Bachelor’s degree in a related field is preferred. Also needed is a valid driver’s license with a clean driving record in case it is necessary to accompany an individual to an appointment. Candidates must also consent to Fingerprinting and a Criminal History Information Records search. The position requires someone who is organized and has an ability to prioritize tasks quickly.
We offer a professional yet relaxed working environment, providing room for personal growth as well as career advancement. Our benefit package is generous and flexible.
To apply, please send your resume and cover letter by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with MHAEMPLOYMENT as the subject line of the e-mail. EOE
