of Gold: How to Find Your Lost Pension
first issue, we reported that the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation's
online pension search had located 1,400 people owed more than $4
million of pension benefits. A year later, we're happy to report
that 1,745 people who worked for 520 different employers have been
found in 45 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Benefits
for the located people totaled over $5 million and ranged from a
few dollars to more than $100,000. The average was about $4,000
WebForms Site Is a Hit
year ago we reported that the General Services Administration has
put hundreds of commonly used federal forms on a one-stop web site.
These GSA forms, Standard Forms, and Optional Forms can be viewed,
filled in, printed, e-mailed or faxed directly from the Internet.
Here's the report one year later--and it's good.
Scientific Journals Online
year we announce another new service developed by the same folks
at the Department of Energy who brought you "an Electronic Bridge
to the 21st century" last year. Believe it or not, researching thousands
of scientific journal articles can now be quick, easy and free with
the exciting new public search service called PubSCIENCE.
Indian Schools Connect for the 21st Century
year we asked if 51,000 American Indian children in 183 Bureau of
Indian Affairs schools--many in remote areas--could be online in
time for the next century. This year we report that on September
26, 1999, Cibecue Community School in Cibecue, Arizona, became the
150th American Indian school to be connected to the Internet. By
spring BIA expects all schools to be online.
