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.
Perhaps the best and most citizen-friendly feature of Benefits.gov is its Personal Benefit Finder wherein an individual will be asked to fill up a form and answer questions such as:
a) What type of benefits are you looking for?
b) What is your date of birth?
c) Where do you live?
d) What's you citizenship status?
e) What is your current employment status?
f) What is your household's annual income before taxes?
g) Are you currently married?
The Website will then analyze your answers and will look for the benefits that are available for your personal situation. This feature makes the process more unique and personalized, thus giving an individual more control over his/her searches.
