Granted, not for children but may be of assistance if you have an adult needing support:
BenefitsCheckUpBenefitsCheckUp - a free, easy-to-use service that identifies federal and state assistance programs for older Americans. Researching these programs used to be a time-consuming, frustrating experience. But no longer.
The National Council on the Aging created BenefitsCheckUp to help older adults to quickly identify programs that may improve the quality of their lives. Family and friends can also obtain facts about benefits that their loved ones may qualify for.
Chances are, you will be surprised to learn what benefits are available to you, regardless of your income.
Here's how it works:
- You take 10 or 15 minutes to enter information about your
financial situation into an online questionnaire.
- Then, BenefitsCheckUp explains what benefit programs you may be eligible for and how to apply for them.
Rest assured that BenefitsCheckUp is completely confidential. It does not require your name, address, phone number, Social Security number, or other information that could be used to identify you.
You enter simple information, such as your age, income, and ZIP code, and BenefitsCheckUp identifies programs you might qualify for.
A lady on one of the HD list wrote about how, after filling in the info on this site, she found:
One recourse for my area in MN was a new (1 yr old)
program called Living at Home/Block Nurse. I called
them, got my first visit 3 weeks ago. They do chores,
minor house repairs, rides, meds and about 15 other
things. They will do whatever you want. Now i have
someone come vacuum and mop (will add dusting..my
house is just awful) once a week. they also do our
mowing, snow removal, fixed 2 leaky faucets, fixed a
crack in the cement on the front steps ....whatever i
put on my list that is minor. My husband has had 2
strokes and not able to help me much at all.)
