The Conference will also include the General Body Meeting of NIAASC.

The previous three conferences have covered issues related to Social Security; Supplemental Security Income (SSI); Medicare; Long Term Care; Family Conflicts and Compromises Faced by Senior Immigrants; Developing Senior Citizen Programs by Local Organizations; Services Available to Seniors through Federally funded State and Local Programs; and Problems and Issued Faced by Seniors of Indian Origin. We had speakers from Social Security, HCFA (now known as Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services), and agencies providing host of services to seniors through Area Agencies on Aging. In addition to the above three conferences NIAASC also collaborated with India Association of Long Island, a 26-year old community-based organization, and developed and provided technical and logistic support at two luncheon programs for seniors.

The NIAASC, a not-for-profit organization under IRS Code: 501(c)3, is an information, referral, resource and advocacy entity. Through its web site it has linkages to many government and non-government agencies throughout the USA. Its newsletter provides pertinent information to seniors and families. Its periodical article in the Indian weekly newspaper "Indian Reporter" - a collaborative effort- has so far covered Entitlement Programs and other issues. The NIAASC has responded to a number of questions raised by the readers of Indian Reporter as well questions asked by listeners at 'Live and Call-In' Programs organized by International Television (ITV). Its collaborative relationship with a number of national organizations addressing issues of seniors has provided it with a wealth of information for the benefit of seniors of Indian origin. Its toll-free telephone number (message only) also helps interested persons to ask questions pertaining to their specific problems. You have been kept informed of the activities of NIAASC on a regular basis through its newsletters and other correspondence from time to time.
