Unlocking Benefits and Resources

What is a Public Benefit?

Public benefits, also known as social welfare or social services, are government-funded assistance programs that provide financial aid and services to individuals and families in need. They support low-income individuals, the elderly, the disabled, and children.
Benefit programs include food assistance, healthcare, housing vouchers, unemployment compensation, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Their aim is to reduce economic disparities and ensure access to basic necessities.
Eligibility is based on factors like income, family size, and specific needs.
