It’s time to reapply for the Circuit Breaker and Illinois Cares Rx Program. Even if you have applied in the past, seniors 65 and older must reapply in order to participate. The program can help pay for prescriptions, offer a possible cash grant for property tax and rent relief and provides a discount for your vehicle license plate sticker.
In order to take part in the Circuit Breaker and Illinois Cares Rx Program, applicants must be 65 and older or 16 and older and disabled. The 2010 household income must be less than $27,160 for a single or less than $36,635 for a married couple. Assets are not factored into income.
