Extra funds for food can help you get through some of the rough patches in life. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can provide you with financial benefits each month that can be used to buy food.
Health coverage protects you and your family against very high expenses if you get sick or hurt. You may qualify for very low cost or free healthcare – financial assistance is available. In New Jersey, if you don’t have health coverage, you may have to pay a penalty when you file your taxes.
If you need help, Fulfill is a state Navigator agency, and our trained healthcare experts can help you find insurance that meets your needs as well as provides financial assistance to pay for the insurance, if you qualify, both through the Marketplace and NJ FamilyCare. 8 out 10 people in NJ qualify for financial assistance.
While open enrollment for the Marketplace ends January 31, the enrollment period for those eligible for NJ FamilyCare is year round.
See our flyer about year-round enrollment. Assistance is available by phone, Zoom and in person by appointment. All assistance is FREE.
