Spectrum Generations, central Maine’s Area Agency on Aging and Aging and Disability Resource Center, will host free benefit check-ups at local town areas. Volunteers from Spectrum Generations will discuss various programs and services that could help residents of Kennebec and Somerset counties save money in these difficult economic times, according to a news release from the agency.

People can stop by any one of the locations to see if they qualify for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, Medicare Savings Program, MaineCare, Supplemental Social Security Income, and Home Energy Assistance Programs. Volunteers will be at the Benton Town Office from 2 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3. The next checkup will be from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Clinton Town Office, and the last one will be from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Sept. 17, at the Interfaith Food Pantry, 23 Lawrence Ave., Fairfield.
