What Is Benefit Bridge?

You get benefits for spending a couple hours per week learning about managing money and employment. Bridge the gap between benefits and self-sufficiency. 

Benefit Bridge helps families who have experienced a loss of benefits due to an increase in wages/income. Benefit Bridge is designed to help you rise to financial security so you can thrive for a lifetime. You can bridge the gap in benefits you may have lost simply because you started earning more money working. In addition, we want to provide the tools for lasting self-sufficiency. In return, we ask you to commit to a couple hours per week. Jump to application
