Department of Social Services

One of our missions at DSS is to build a healthier Montgomery County, and a big part of staying health is having good health insurance. From Nov. 1st until Dec. 15th, individuals who don't get health insurance at work have a chance to sign up for qualifying coverage at HealthCare.gov. Most families can qualify for financial assistance--the average cost of coverage is between $50-100 per month. 

Visit HealthCare.gov now to apply for qualifying healthcare insurance. 

ebtEDGE Mobile Application Now Available 

Food and Nutrition Services and Work First recipients can now access account information through a free mobile application called ebtEDGE. The app allows individuals in the FNS and WF programs to use their smartphone to look up real time account balances, deposit/transaction history, benefit schedules, and locate EBT retailers. Recipients are still able to use existing channels, such as calling the EBT Call Center at 1-888-622-7328.

The ebtEDGE application is available through Google Play and iTunes.
