FREE BENEFITS SCREENING
Need help with groceries? Rent too expensive? Need spending money? Unemployed? The benefits screening takes you through a quick series of questions to see which public benefits you qualify for. Once you're done, you discuss your options with your Single Stop Coordinator to see which one(s) would work for you. No fixed schedule -Benefits Screening - V231, Monday - Friday. There are no set office hours because they're really flexible. Please call to set up an appointment. Drop ins welcome.

Give your Single Stop Coordinator a call and she'll be happy to answer questions regarding benefits and how they work.*Click on this link to see Myths and Truths Regarding Students, Taxes and Benefits.  Is this really free? Yes! It is REALLY free! Kingsborough Community College decided to begin this initiative in collaboration with Single Stop USA in order to support students in achieving their degrees. The college found that a primary reason for students dropping out of school was taking on work responsibilities to meet life priorities, thereby taking longer to finish their degrees or not completing them at all. Kingsborough and Single Stop hope to reduce or prevent that cycle by letting students know which benefits exist to provide them support when they need it.

FREE TAX PREPARATION
Completely free tax preparation, even if you E-File! ! Tax Prep - V201, Monday - Thursday, between 10AM and 8PM walk-ins are welcome and Saturday appointments are available.  Single Stop now offers Virtual Tax. What is VIRTUAL Tax Preparation? The tax preparer is not in the same location where you are. The tax information is transferred though a secure web site to the preparation site. Then the certified tax preparer will interview you and prepare the return remotely based on the information provided by you and sent by the intake site. This process will allow you to drop off your tax information and continue with your daily activities while your tax return is being preparer. We've encountered ALOT of tax related questions. Feel free to drop by V231 during the tax preparations days and times and the certified tax preparers would be happy to answer your questions.

FREE FINANCIAL  COUNSELING
Never had a credit card? Had too many and need to fix your credit? Think your credit is good but you have no idea? Come and see our financial counselor to figure it all out! He can pull your credit report(s), discuss what's on it, help you figure out which bank would work for you and your needs, and more! He'll work with you to achieve your financial goals - however long it takes! He's here every Tuesday 9AM-5PM by appointment only, V231.
