BenefitMe is a new website aimed at helping people find what benefits they can receive.
There are lots of Work and Income benefits for people who need help in Aotearoa New Zealand, but it can be hard to know which ones you can get. BenefitMe helps you find out what you’re eligible for and what happens if things in your life change.
BenefitMe is a community effort to put some power back into the hands of the public, so anyone can find the support and services they’re legally eligible for and be more able to engage from a position of confidence with government departments.
Payments currently supported:
- Sole Parent Support
- Disability Allowance
- Accommodation Supplement
- Emergency Benefit (see Discretionary benefits)
BenefitMe is an initiative by the Digital Aotearoa Collective (DAC), a civil society group committed to addressing injustice and improving wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand. Click the link to find more about BenefitMe
