Services Texas residents can apply for using the Your Texas Benefits website include SNAP food benefits and health care benefits. Other benefits include cash help for families and Medicare savings programs.
Before a resident applies for benefits, he can use the online tool to determine what benefits he may qualify for. Videos on the website help visitors understand the available benefits and the application process. Once an applicant starts his application, he can save it and go back to continue at any time he chooses.
After the applicant has submitted his application, he can check the status of his case at the Your Texas Benefits website. Once an applicant is approved for benefits, he can view his benefits and amounts as well as report any changes to his case directly online. Residents can also print Medicaid cards, view Medicaid services and upload requested files. Users can also view Items sent to the website and any scheduled interview times. Those qualifying for SNAP food benefits may wish to view the shopping ideas and healthy recipes that the site links to.
People who need to locate a benefit office can do so by choosing the Find Office option at the top of the Your Texas Benefits homepage. From there, users can input a ZIP code to find the nearest office.
