November 29, 2017 - Residents who preregistered online for DSNAP but were physically unable to visit a Food for Florida site personally, may be able to interview for the federal benefits by phone this weekend.
Qualified individuals must:
- have preregistered online by November 9
- be head of household AND 60 years of age, OR disabled
- have valid identification which will be verified during the interview
Individuals who meet the criteria and have last names beginning with A through L should call 855-278-7136 on SATURDAY, December 2. Those with last names beginning with M through Z should call 855-278-7136 on SUNDAY, December 3.
Callers should have their Florida drivers licenses or identification cards, and their Social Security numbers ready, as they will be asked questions to verify their identity.
Call-in interviews to participate in DSNAP are only available to those who qualify. Those who do not meet the criteria as specified in Florida's federally-approved DSNAP waiver, may choose to apply for regular SNAP food assistance, and other public benefits at www.myflorida.com/accessflorida/.
