InForm

About

A platform to better navigate the benefit system

InForm is a website to facilitate low-income benefit enrolment in the USA. The US benefits system is intended to support the lives of thousands who struggle to provide for their families; however, the application process is both lengthy and complicated, requiring applicants to visit an estimated 20 websites, 126 pages and spending up to 67 hours reading online. Using the inForm platform, applicants can learn what benefits they might be eligible for, fill in all documents needed for the pre-enrolment stages and access interview-prep guides.
