What Is a "My Compass" Account in Georgia?

An account with Georgia's My Compass service allows recipients of state social services to access information about their benefits from the Internet. The online service is provided for residents who receive benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid, WIC or PeachCare for Kids.

Following approval for one or more social service programs, individuals can visit the Georgia Compass website at Compass.ga.gov to create a user account. Once registered, recipients can review agency-generated notices about their benefits, renew their annual applications, and report changes to their monthly income or family size. Residents also use the site to apply for additional social service benefits and check the status of pending applications.
