Continuing to bounce ... this impressed me a lot ... it's the "GovBenefits" site in the USA and is the first time I've seen anyone aggregate many benefits programmes (55 today, and it even lists all the owning departments in a special "movie credits" like section) in a single site and let you step through those that might apply to you. This is nearly e-government in action. The good bit is that the site doesn't ask you for personal data to start with (so you can assess anonymously whether you are due benefit), but then it doesn't let you apply online (or not as far as I can tell). This is a step forward of course, but it's not the whole way yet. We have something similar in the UK, called Entitledto which I also think is good. More please.
