Quick check

Welcome to QuickCheck!

QuickCheck is a screening tool of The Benefit Bank that estimates eligibility for benefits. You will be asked a few questions about yourself and your household. Based on your answers, you will see a results page with program information and a rough estimate of your household's eligibility for various benefits, as well as tax credits. Keep in mind that the result is an estimate, not an actual eligibility decision.

At the end of this screening tool, you can create an account with The Benefit Bank to start an application. Creating an account gives you access to all the applications and guidance available in our service--we not only help you through the application process, but we also let you know what to expect from benefit agencies after you apply. We encourage you to explore the many features within The Benefit Bank, regardless of your QuickCheck result!
