Frequently-asked questions

Many of our visitors come to the website with very specific questions. These questions range from such topics as our Treasury Offset Program, to grants and loans and unclaimed money—programs and services we do not administer or provide. In these cases (such as with grants, loans and unclaimed money) we'll try to direct you to other agencies or organizations that can help you. Also, a brief visit to our About Us section will give you an idea as to the kinds of services we do (and do not) provide.
