BenefitsCheckUp® is a free, confidential online tool that helps older adults and people with disabilities find benefits programs they might be eligible for depending on their location.
How we help match you with benefits that can help you save money
1. Answer some questions to get more information
Start browsing benefits by entering your ZIP code and choose the categories that you're most interested in. Once you have made your selections and click next, you'll have the ability to review your initial results or enter more details to further personalize your options. For programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps), the Medicare Low-Income Subsidy, and Medicare Savings Programs, among others, additional information may be required to determine your eligibility.
2. Check to see if you qualify or if further information is required
When clicking 'See If You May Be Eligible', our free, confidential tool will ask you additional questions to help determine your eligibility and will provide you with a personalized report. Once your 'Eligibility Results' report has been created, you can view it as a PDF, email it, go back and edit your answers, and you also have the option to screen for someone else.
3. Find out how to apply or view more information on the agency's website
Now that you have your personalized benefits report, you have the option to apply online through the agency's website by clicking 'Apply Online', view more info about the program, or use the contact information provided to call the agency directly.
If you're having trouble determining your next step, you can always speak to a BenefitsCheckUp support specialist through our website's chat feature, calling our hotline at 1-800-794-6559, or you may find talking to a benefits enrollment specialist helpful.
