About BenefitsCheckUp

BenefitsCheckUp® is a free service of the National Council on Aging (NCOA). It is the nation’s most comprehensive online tool to connect older adults to benefits.  

Every year, billions of dollars in benefits programs go unclaimed because older adults don't know they’re eligible or how to apply.

Since 2001, 9.9 million people have used BenefitsCheckUp to find over $42 billion in benefits to help pay for food, medicine, health care, utilities, and more. 

The site is confidential, and there’s no registration required.
