Under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, many Pennsylvanians are newly eligible for financial assistance or may see an increase in the amount of financial assistance, like advance premium tax credits (APTC), they can receive.
These savings could significantly lower your monthly premiums. Even if you were previously ineligible for financial assistance through Pennie, you may be able to save under the American Rescue Plan. The easiest way to determine eligibility is by applying using Pennie’s online application. Pennie makes getting assistance and coverage easy. Just follow the simple steps below to update your application.
Step 1: Login to your Pennie account at pennie.com
Step 2: Select ‘Edit your application’ from your Pennie account dashboard
Step 3: Select ‘Yes’ in the ‘Help Paying for Coverage’ step in your application
Note: You can navigate to this step on the panel located on the left-hand side of your application
Step 4: Follow the remaining steps to submit your updated eligibility application
NOTE: You will need to provide information about your household, including household income.
Were you eligible for unemployment compensation in 2021? Tax filers and their spouses who were eligible for just one week of unemployment benefits in 2021 could be eligible for additional savings. Make sure to complete the “Get Ready” tab under “Income Information” as show below.
