The Benefit Bank

The Rockingham County Literacy Project (RCLP) is a member organization of the Benefit Bank of North Carolina.   Trained counselors assist students, tutors and other members of the community to apply for public benefits such as Medicaid, Medicare Rx Prescription Assistance, food and nutrition services (food stamps), applications for student aid (FAFSA) and Work First family assistance.   The RCLP does not assist in federal or state tax filing.

Although determining eligibility is still left up to the Department of Social Services (DSS), counselors assist people in completing the forms so they are better prepared and have all the necessary documentation when they present themselves at the DSS.   This saves time and effort for the individuals applying for services, as well as for the DSS personnel.
