New for 2020: The State Will File for You; No Action Required by You

New for 2020: We Will File for You; No Action Required by You

We will file 2020 ANCHOR applications on behalf of most qualified residents who received a 2019 ANCHOR benefit earlier this year. If you qualify, you will receive an "ANCHOR Benefit Confirmation Letter" in August of 2023, notifying you that you meet the requirements.

If the information in your confirmation letter remains the same as your prior filing, no action is required on your part. Benefit payments will be issued using the same method and banking information used in your prior filing and contained in your confirmation letter. You can check the status of your benefit payment beginning in mid-October.

However, if any information from your prior filing changed, you must file your application to update these changes (using one of the methods to the right) before September 30, 2023. We will not make adjustments to your name or banking information after September 30, 2023. Payments will be issued using the information we have on file.
