Volunteers needed, The Benefit Bank

Posted by on August 31, 2009

Solutions for Progress seeks a team of volunteers to implement their innovative software The Benefit Bank

The Benefit Bank is a web-based, counselor-assisted program that simplifies and centralizes the process of applying for many state and federal benefits for low- and moderate-income individuals and families. Through its eligibility screening tool, TBB can ensure that people are fully aware of the benefits to which they are entitled and, as an expert system it helps maximize the benefits and tax refunds they can secure. The “one-stop-shop” concept of TBB reduces the amount of time needed to apply for benefits. Further, the information a person enters is stored securely, so an individual who wishes to reapply for benefits, apply for new benefits or file future tax returns simply needs to enter his or her username and password to initiate this new action.

The team of volunteers we seek will serve as a “mobile unit” that will visit various sites across Philadelphia, along with a Benefit Bank staff member, to help individuals apply for benefits.
