Senior Employment

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and work-based training program for older workers. SCSEP provides useful community services and fosters individual economic self-sufficiency through training and placement into unsubsidized jobs.

Participants gain work experience in a variety of community service activities. Participants work, on average, 20 hours a week and are paid the highest federal, state, or local minimum wage. This training serves as a bridge to unsubsidized employment opportunities for participants. No resource/asset limit is required.

If you have Parkinson's, and you have not yet qualified for disability or need additional time prior to meeting Social Security Benefits and find yourself still needing employment, utilize your local Area Agency on Aging to see what opportunities might be available to you. To qualify, participants must:

  • Be an Alabama resident

  • Be age 55 or older

  • Be unemployed

  • Have an income of less than 125% of the federal poverty level

To receive assistance, contact your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) at 1.800.AGE.LINE (1.800.243.5463) or visit:
