TECH HELPLINE FOR THE 60+ COMMUNITY
At a time where we’re online more than ever, a little technical support goes a long way. UJA-Federation of New York’s Tech Helpline, in partnership with Older Adults Technology Services and Senior Planet, provides advice over the phone to questions such as:

  • How do I get an attachment to open?
  • What happened to my WIFI?
  • How does someone see me on a Zoom call?
  • I touched something, and now the screen is blank

If you are in need of tech help, please contact Julie Assael, 516.484.1545 ext. 134, for more information.
