Have you been looking for personal financial assistance from the federal government recently? Have you been looking for personal benefits from the federal government? Before you move forward with your search, perhaps you'd like to know that the government has dedicated a site that is primarily designed to help every citizen find the benefits that are meant for them.

The United States Federal Government launched the Benefits.gov Website in 2002 in the hopes of providing every American with easy and convenient online access to government benefits and programs.
