In our post today, we’re going to go over some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our readers regarding the MyAccess Florida website. The Automated Community Connection to Economic Self Sufficiency (ACCESS) Florida system allows customers to connect with their public assistance information at any time through the online application and their MyAccess Florida account.
The MyAccess Florida system is mandated by the Florida Department of Children and Families. You can determine benefit eligibility, apply for benefits and access benefit information from the MyAccess website.
To access benefit information, you must log into your MyAccess account using your User ID and Password. If you would like more information regarding the MyAccess Florida website, check out our previous post here.

Question #1: I want to apply for benefits – how do I know if I am eligible?
To determine eligibility for benefits in Florida, you must meet certain monthly income requirements. Other factors such as household size, expenses and assets are also considered when determining benefit eligibility. To see if you and your household fall within the approved income limits, check out our previous post here. Also, complete the eligibility test on the MyAccess Florida website, here.
Question #2: I don’t have a MyAccess Florida account – how do I sign up for one?
In order to access benefit information, you must sign up for a MyAccess account. Signing up is easy and requires some basic information. You’ll need your full name, birth date, case number, zip code and payee information. You’ll also be asked to create the User ID and Password of your choice, along with a series of security questions. For more information how to sign up for an account, read our post about MyAccess Florida Account creation.
Question #3: I lost MyAccess login information (User ID & Password) – what do I do?
We get this question a lot and it’s an easy fix! On the MyAccess login page, there are two links – one to recover your User ID and another to reset your Password. If you have forgotten both your User ID and Password, then you will want to recover the User ID first because you will need that information to reset your Password. For in-depth instructions on how to complete the process, we will walk you through step-by-step, here.
Question #4: I want to know when my benefits are disbursed – how can I do that?
To see your benefit disbursement schedule, login to your MyAccess Florida account. Your account will have all the information regarding your benefits. For help logging in, follow our step-by-step guide in the previous post.
