66% Of Americans Believe They Are Eligible For Government Benefits They Don't Know About
Survey Finds... 81% of Americans Believe the Government is NOT Doing A Good Job Of Telling About Available Money Programs Two-thirds of Americans indicated in a recent national survey that they believe the government has financial programs they would be eligible for but don't know enough about them to apply - primarily because the government is not doing a sufficient enough job of letting Americans know. The survey was conducted by the University of Connecticut, Center for Survey Research and Analysis.
These recent survey results reveal that many Americans think the government is doing a poor job of letting people know about government financial assistance programs. Of the 1,000 people surveyed, nearly half (48%) earning more than $75,000 annually, believe they are eligible for money they don't know about. A significant majority of both Democrats (73%) and Republications (60%) believe there is money available they are unaware of. And more people under the age of 44 (72%) than over the age of 60 (56%) believe there is unknown money due to them.
"During these tight economic times when families are watching each and every penny they earn and spend, it is crucial for Americans to know what monies are available to them," says Matthew Lesko, New York Times Best Selling author and consumer advocate who works to educate Americans about free government money. "It is imperative for all Americans to know what they have access to."
Methodology:This survey was sponsored by New York Times Best-Selling Author Matthew Lesko. The results are based on a representative national telephone survey of 1,000 adult Americans, conducted by the University of Connecticut, Center for Survey Research and Analysis. The survey was conducted April 20 to May 2, 2005 and has a margin of error of +-3.2%".
