A COMPASS account is the vehicle by which people in Georgia manage their public assistance benefits as of 2015. The Georgia Department of Human Services administers COMPASS, and there is a link on its website to community partners who can help people navigate COMPASS.
COMPASS is an acronym for Common Point of Access to Social Services, and an online COMPASS account allows people to view information about their benefits, renew their benefits or report changes in their information. The COMPASS website has tools that allow people to determine if they are eligible for programs such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or Medicaid. People may also use tools on the COMPASS website to apply for benefits and check on their applications.
