The deadline for filing your ANCHOR benefit application is February 28, 2023. NJ will begin paying ANCHOR benefits in the late Spring of 2023. ANCHOR payments will be paid in the form of a direct deposit or check, not as credits to property tax bills. Homeowners who filed a Homestead Benefit application last year may be able to obtain their ID and PIN numbers online. Renters/Tenants do not need an ID or PIN number to file. Visit the Division’s ANCHOR page for all filing information.
The ANCHOR call center will have extended hours through February 28, 2023. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. until February 28, 2023.
Visit the ANCHOR Benefit Inquiry portal to check the status of your application.
