Are there government benefits that could help you — ones you are not yet accessing? Go on the Web to https://www.benefits.gov/ (link will open in a new window or tab) to check.

Until now, discovering what government benefits are available and which ones you can qualify for has been, at best, a hit-and-miss exercise. No one person possessed all the information about loans, grants, insurance, food programs, rental assistance and other possible government benefits.

MEO clients with case workers have a better chance than most of discovering needed assistance. This Web site will make life easier even for those case managers and clients. Also, starting on this U.S. government Web site, a few clicks will take you to Web pages about benefits available through the Hawai‘i government. Even if you think there are no benefits available to you, you owe it to your family to spend a few minutes on the site . . . just checking it out.
