You can use the My ACCESS website to apply for the Florida Food Assistance Program (Food Stamps/SNAP), Medical Assistance, and Temporary Financial Assistance for Families with Children (TANF). You can also view your performance information online 24/7.
The Access Florida division uses this platform to reach millions of Florida residents in need of government financial assistance. The program more or less alleviates poverty so that disadvantaged people can benefit from quality health care, access to food, and much more.
What Is Florida EBT?
You should keep a copy of your most recent Florida EBT receipt if you want to know your balance. You can look at the balance on your EBT card online if you do not have your latest ticket. First, you need to enter your EBT card number. You can also call the customer service number on your card (1-888-356-3281).
You will then be prompted to provide the 16-digit number on your EBT card. The card balance will then display. Finally, if you want to check the balance on your card, you can visit a supermarket, or ATM, or check it at a pharmacy point of sale.
