Mary Alice Reporting – Those looking to get information on assistance can now do so through an updated state website.

Tuscarawas County Job and Family Services shared details for the Ohio Benefits Self-Service Portal that can provide information on eligibility for cash assistance, food assistance, medical assistance, or childcare assistance.

If eligible, a person could then apply online and provide the needed verification by uploading necessary documents into the system, which can be done through a mobile device.

Once the account is created, the process then becomes more streamlined to apply for benefits, check the status of benefits, submit any changes or documentation, and have further assistance information available at any time.

The site can be accessed at www.ssp.benefits.ohio.gov.

Anyone in need of assistance to set up this account can reach out to the Tuscarawas JFS Office at 330-339-7791.
