Technology Update

The Benefit Bank has closed.

Communally, the owner of The Benefit Bank, has officially closed. Over their 14 year history, they helped millions of people access billions of dollars of tax refunds and work supports all over the country in over 6,000 sites. Over 25,000 counselors helped their communities through The Benefit Bank over the years. TBB showed that technology and outreach could reach the far corners of rural communities and the depths of cities. Communally is thankful for the affiliates, sites and counselors that have contributed to their success since 2005.

In the state of South Carolina alone, we have brought back over $636 million in tax refunds and work supports using The Benefit Bank from 2009-2019. Thank you for your commitment to serving your communities and for your partnership over the years. We are excited about the new opportunities that our new system will bring and the chance to serve even more South Carolina residents in new and innovative ways.

At SC Thrive, we are now using Thrive Hub to complete and submit benefits applications. You can learn more about Thrive Hub HERE.
