This free-to-use, do-it-yourself version of The Benefit Bank online service offers free, easy step-by-step instructions to access to the following:
  • Tax Filing - Self-Serve clients will find easy step-by-step instructions to file federal and state income tax returns for free! Our expert system asks the right questions to maximize refunds. Clients can file for the current year and up to three years of back taxes.
  • FAFSA - Students looking to get federal aid will appreciate the auto-fill features and guidance built into our Self-Serve FAFSA service. Colleges and universities use the FAFSA to determine eligibility for federal student aid, including grants, loans, and work-study.
  • Voter Registration Form - U.S. citizens who want to make their voices heard can fill out a voter registration form using Self-Serve. Registered voters can use the form to make changes to their information.
  • Benefit Applications - Getting public benefits can be a complex process. Our Self-Serve service guides clients through various benefit applications, with plenty of help text along the way, and tells people what to expect once an application is completed. This service is available in select states.
