The Ohio Benefit Bank™ is designed to make it simpler for people in Ohio to connect with programs and resources that can make those decisions a little bit easier. From the comfort of your home or from any computer with Internet access, you can use The Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB™) to complete applications for programs like food assistance, child care assistance, health coverage, and much more.

We even help veterans access the education benefits they have earned, and we can help anyone complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to help with the costs of higher education.Plus, you can use the OBB to file your federal, state, and school district taxes absolutely free!  Call 937-393-2220 to make your appointment today!
