Money Management

Our Money Management Program (MMP) offers services to help low-income senior citizens who have difficulty budgeting, paying routine bills, and keeping track of financial matters. The goal of this program is to promote independent living for individuals who are at risk of losing independence due to inability to manage financial affairs. Clients are matched with trained volunteers who assist with money management issues. This program is sponsored by the Illinois Department on Aging.

The MCHD also offers a Private Pay Money Management Program (MMP) for seniors whose income and/or assets exceed the AARP program or people under the age of 60. The goal of this program is to promote independent living for anyone having difficulty handling their finances. The services provided range from budgeting and assistance with routine bill payment to a Representative Payee program in which all financial matters are taken care of by the MMP staff. These services are provided by Money Management staff who are insured and bonded through the MCHD. For more information on the Private Pay MMP, please call (217) 423-6550 or email
