Brought to the Web by the National Council on the Aging (NCOA), with assistance from a number of national organizations and companies, this new site is designed to help seniors become aware of benefits they may not be receiving. According to NCOA, millions of seniors do not collect the foodstamps or SSI income to which they are entitled or do not participate in Medicaid, though they are eligible. At the site, seniors or their caregivers fill out a Web form giving relevant information such as zip code, income, and age, and BenefitsCheckUp will let them know what programs they are eligible for and how to apply for them. The material visitors enter is treated as confidential and does not include any identifying information such as name, social security number, or telephone number. Readers should note that the questionnaire is somewhat long and will time out if left unattended too long; thus they will want to gather information about their income and assets before sitting down to fill out the Web form.
