If you are applying through the PEAK Website, before you start your online application, you might want to gather the following information to help you complete the application:

- Full names, dates of birth, and Social Security Numbers (SSNs) for the people applying for benefits.

- If someone in your home is pregnant, the due date and number of babies for that pregnancy.

- If someone is working, pay check stubs for that person’s job(s). We will ask how much each person makes at his/her job, how often he/she is paid, and how many hours he/she works.

- Benefit check stubs or award letters for types of income, such as Social Security, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Child Support. They will ask when these types of benefits started, how much is received, and how often it is received.

- If someone is self‐employed, last year’s tax return for his/her self‐employment (if he/she field taxes for the business). Otherwise, try to gather information about his/her income and expenses for the business.

- How much you pay each month for housing (examples: rent, lot rent, mortgage, property taxes, or homeowner’s insurance).

- How much you pay each month for utilities (examples: electricity, gas, phone, water, and trash removal).

- How much you pay for someone’s care (example: day care for your children) and who provides the care.
