How Can I Log into Access Florida

Florida’s ACCESS program provides critically needed services to those of low income in the areas of food and medical assistance. Temporary assistance is also offered to those who are non-citizens, but it is very temporary. A large portion of the ACCESS programs are geared toward providing nutrition for those families with children, or pregnant women, as well as assisting the disabled and elderly in obtaining food for themselves and their families or caregivers.

In order to login, you will need to go to the website: https://dcf-access.dcf.state.fl.us/access/index.do and place your User ID and the Password into the entry box titled: Returning Users. If you have not created an account, you will need to do so first. To create an account, click on the link titled: Create my Access Account, which is located in the box that is titled: Get Started Now.

This page also offers you more information about the types of services, the different requirements for qualification for the different programs, and how to contact someone with your questions about the programs, even if you aren’t officially in their system yet. You can also apply for benefits from this same webpage. Most people only take about 20 minutes to complete the form online.

In order to create an account, you will need to make sure you have the following available:

·       Basic personal information

·       Case number (assigned to you when your eligibility was determined)

The signup form will also ask you to decide how you would like to receive notifications about the program, either email or snail mail. If you don’t have a home computer, and use a public computer for access, it might be more secure to use the home’s mailing address.

Logging Into ACCESS Florida

Once the account is set up, it is easier to login upon your return. Most computers will store ‘cookies’ that will allow the computer to remember the user id and password for you. However, you should also physically write down the login information somewhere safe at home to be certain. If you login and are still not able to get logged in, chances are that your benefits have been revoked, you no longer meet the criteria required by the state, the time frame has expired, or there is some other discrepancy with your account. You can call the department directly to inquire about the status of your account: 1-866-762-2237.
