The Baby Boomers. Dubbed so for being born during a post-WWII population increase, the Boomers spearheaded the civil rights movement, shattered glass ceilings with second wave feminism and still hold much sway over government. In fact, more than half of the nation’s voting-age population is now over 45. It is in local government’s best interest to cater to this large, politically active demographic and GovPilot can help.
The Baby Boomer generation is comprised of people born between the postwar years of 1946 and 1964. Whereas those born closer to the tail end of this period won’t yet qualify, we offer a number of processes designed to help members of the Baby Boomer generation aged 65 and up take advantage of age-related benefits. Learn about two of them below.
GovPilot’s home state of New Jersey offers a $250 real property tax deduction for residents aged 65 and older and many states grant similar discounts to seniors. You can further convenience older members of your community by implementing GovPilot’s Senior Citizen Tax Deduction process.
The process features customizable digital registration forms that can be placed on your municipal or county website for applicants to access from virtually any device. Form language is straightforward and submission is as simple as a cursor click. No printing, no scanning and no visits to city hall—a true bonus for a segment of the population that may have difficulty leaving the house.
The convenience continues even after the applicant hits submit. GovPilot’s custom, automated workflow ensures that the application is reviewed by the appropriate government personnel in the established order. Alerts inform applicants of new developments for transparent tracking. Swift turnaround means that seniors can start benefitting from age-related property tax breaks as soon as they’re deemed eligible.
2. Senior Citizen ID Card
As they experience hearing loss, failing eyesight and other age-related ailments, many seniors hang-up their car keys for good. They may no longer be licensed drivers, but such seniors are still active members of society who require identification to vote, benefit from senior discounts and gain admission to organizations and events. Local governments that issue ID cards using GovPilot’s automated issuance process allows seniors to get back out there, without having to leave their living room!
Customize GovPilot’s digital registration form to fit your administration’s unique needs and watch senior citizen ID card registration skyrocket. Workflow automation allows you to handle an increased registration volume in record time.
Your residents are only growing older! Fortunately, GovPilot offers tools to help you accommodate constituents at any age and life stage. Schedule a demo to learn more.
