About

MAPRP

Funding

 

The Mid-America Pension Rights Project is a program of Elder Law of Michigan, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  We are funded by private donations and a Federal grant provided by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) that is through the Older Americans Act.

 

MAPRP Region

 

The Mid-America Pension Rights Project serves Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.  Please contact us if:

  • You currently live or work in the state the project serves, or if you lived or worked in the state while earning the pension; or 

  • The company or pension plan is headquartered, or has operations now in the state, or if it had operations in the state when the pension was earned. 

 

If you do not qualify for the MAPRP’s services, you can find the appropriate counseling project or agency that can assist you at the Pension Rights Center
