New Mobile App for Public Benefits in Wisconsin
By the GWAAR Legal Services Team
Wisconsin DHS recently launched a new mobile application (app) for people to apply for and manage public benefits. The free app, called MyACCESS, became available on November 12 to a limited number of people as a soft launch, and becomes available to everyone in January 2019. The app is a spinoff of the ACCESS website.
With the new mobile app, people will be able to:
See an overview of the programs they are enrolled in.
Receive reminders of actions they need to take or verification documents they need to submit.
Take photos of and submit required documents.
Check the real-time status of submitted documents.
This app will be helpful for people on or applying for FoodShare, BadgerCare+, long-term care Medicaid, MAPP, Medicaid deductible, and Medicare Savings Programs.
