Have you been looking for personal financial assistance from the federal government recently? Have you been looking for personal benefits from the federal government? Before you move forward with your search, perhaps you'd like to know that the government has dedicated a site that is primarily designed to help every citizen find the benefits that are meant for them.
The United States Federal Government launched the Benefits.gov Website in 2002 in the hopes of providing every American with easy and convenient online access to government benefits and programs.
Upon the launching of Benefits.gov, it featured 55 programs, representing only 10 Federal agency partners. Since then, the website has grown and now includes over 1,000 programs, representing 17 Federal agency partners.
Benefits.gov has been consistently working towards offering hassle-free, improved and personalized service to the citizens of the United States in the process of finding programs and activities that would greatly benefit them and their families.
The principal mission of Benefits.gov is to reduce the difficulty and expense of interacting and communicating with the government while simultaneously increasing the public's access to essential information regarding government benefits.
