How do I apply?
You can apply for benefits by mail, phone, online, or visit a Human Services Department Application Center.
If you cannot get to the application center, someone who knows your circumstances, and is authorized by you, can apply and be interviewed for you. If you are disabled and cannot get someone to apply for you, you can apply by mail or phone.
If you currently receive CalFresh, CalWORKs, and Medi-Cal benefits and have questions, please call the Benefits Service Center at 1 (888) 421-8080.
