Our Helpline is the entry point for receiving help at Legal Services for Maine Elders. The Helpline provides information and brief services over the telephone on a broad range of legal issues. Helpline Attorneys handle matters involving public benefits, tenant's rights, debt collection, and many other areas of the law.
The Helpline also runs the Health Insurance Counseling Program, in conjunction with the Area Agencies on Aging and the Office of Elder Services. The Health Insurance Counseling Program provides consumers with information and assistance regarding Medicaid, Medicare, Medigap and private health insurance. In addition, one of LSE's Helpline Attorneys works full-time on health insurance matters.
If LSE’s experienced Helpline attorneys and paralegal are unable to resolve a matter, they may be able to refer you to another organization that can. Helpline Attorneys frequently make referrals to the Area Agencies on Aging, Volunteer Lawyers Project, Pine Tree Legal Assistance, and other service providers throughout the state.
To get help, call the Helpline at 1-800-750-5353.
