The Good Benefits Of Working For The Government

The government supplies those with financial difficulties with many benefits of financial aid such as Medicaid, Food Stamps, Social Security, and Disability. The importance of these aids are substantially important to those that receive the benefits of the governments help whom in many ways do not have the ability to provide for themselves or loved ones properly. Many of these benefits help the elderly which are still able to live on their own and that is a good thing because the elderly deserve to receive these benefits. I believe this because I know my grandfather worked for many years till he was eighty-one years old when he retired and now receives these benefits and the amount which he receives is not a lot of money but he survives with what he is given because he has earned what he now receives.

There are families also that have disabled veterans or disabled workers which benefit from government financial aid agencies and because they have a disabled family member there is usually only one person financially supporting a family. Many times the disabled family member is a father and the family has five members including the mother and father and those families are then dependent on the mothers income which many times is very minimal causing the family to stress and worry about paying bills living in a small apartment. Another family that usually benefits from the financial aids of the government is single parent households which are usually single mothers supporting her and three children. In households of single parents, they are usually receiving Medicaid and Food Stamps which maintain a life style of food on the table and a roof above their heads. But people living off of government assistance are usually not living a luxurious life style which they dream of and children that come from broken or financially unstable homes most of the time do not break the cycle of financial struggle which they have been born into. The importance of government financial aid is to help people that struggle like the examples which I have presented and through these many aids we hope for a brighter future and push to the children of the families which need these financial support help.

The ways the United States government can improve these financial aid agencies to prevent people that may take advantage of the assistance which the government is providing them with is to do deeper background checks such as companies that research people whom are being considered for a job. Many companies now research candidates for jobs like going onto the candidates social media accounts to see what kind of person they really are and why shouldn’t the government do that to people which are being financially helped by the government. The government should improve the agencies by improving its effectiveness in the actual communities which are lower income and may receive the benefits more frequently than others by increasing its ways of maintaining records of people that come to apply for financial aid. If agencies keep good records of people that apply and receive financial support from aid offices then the agencies will be able to function smoother and quicker than what they do now. The greatest way that the government could improve the financial aid agencies is to help improve the communities that these services serve. Through improving the communities we must begin by improving the education system, encourage higher education, improve the benefits of the families by increasing wages and better jobs, and the largest improvement would be to influence communities with encouragement of a greater lifestyle than what they were given.
