“Privacy Issues?”

Dee D.
11/25/20

I discovered this site indirectly through a state government site for Covid-related benefits. Governments have evidently authorized them to create, and turn over to agencies, MUCH more user-friendly applications for government benefits. Purportedly they are a non-profit almost on a par of excellence with such nonprofits as Peace Corps or Doctors Without Borders. They seem to be making an effort to make our bloated bureaucracies accessible to average citizens, whose experiences nowadays would make the scenes in the books by Franz Kafka seem like a paradise by comparison if you know what I mean. In these times, one ordinary victimless mishap can render you (who live HERE and have been tracked from birth) ‘socially dead' for life: unqualified for jobs, education, benefits, loans, housing — in short, Life. They are also involved in expunging those ridiculous convictions for marijuana possession and other "crimes" if I understood correctly. "Giving people a second chance to get jobs and housing by clearing past convictions." [600K - the number of people arrested for weed possession in 2016. "In the U.S. today, 1 in 3 people have a criminal record that appears on a routine background check."] What kills me is they literally make Americans pay for the costs of their petty convictions and being locked up, from what I've been told repeatedly. But is there any privacy? All the personal data and income and SSNs you're giving up? I didn't see a single word about that.

Tip for consumers:
Their site appears to be Government but it is not. You will find out in the End of the application.

Q&A (2)

Answer:

They evidently Text and Email you regarding certain benefits to track the success of the application.

Answer:

Direct application to your state agency. There is a problem with filling out applications on mobile devices. Code For America's application is Far more user friendly and it goes directly to the appropriate agency.
