In our post today, we will outline how to create a My Access Florida Account, as well as what information can be obtained using your My Access Florida Account. The Automated Community Connection to Economic Self Sufficiency (Access) Florida system allows customers to connect with their public assistance information 24/7, through the online application and My Access Account. The Access program helps to promote strong and economically self-sufficient communities by determining eligibility for food, cash and medical assistance for individuals and families working towards economic recovery. The program is managed on the local level by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
Some functions that can be completed within your My Access Florida Account include applying for assistance (food assistance, temporary cash assistance, medicaid), checking on the status of your application, report a change, request additional benefits, and information regarding your current benefits. You are also able to obtain information regarding your EBT Card such as your benefit distribution schedule, current benefit balance, and transaction history to name a few. This information and more is available to you 24 hours a day, seven days per week, when you use your online account. In addition, you can also submit requested verification to the department using the document upload feature.
