How do I know which benefits I need and how can I tell which ones are more important to me than others?


By clicking on the Quick Links tab, then on Benefit Information on the PEAK homepage, you can read a short description of each program you may qualify for. If you are applying for Medical or Food Assistance, the system will figure out which program you qualify for and which best meets your needs. The difference between Colorado Works and Adult Financial is the fact that Colorado Works requires you to meet income requirements and have dependent children living with you. Adult Financial also has income limits, age, and disability requirements.

The Am I Eligible page can help you understand what Food Assistance and Cash Assistance you might qualify for. There is no harm in applying for all programs, and we encourage you to apply for any benefit you think you may qualify for and need.
