Here are some extra reminders & FAQ about the next steps in the process. There are many steps to follow but are essential to determine your eligibility and continuity in the program
WHEN TO EXPECT COUNTY INTERVIEW?
As stated on the application website, GetCalFresh, there are delays in applications right now since the county is experiencing high application volumes. Normally, we tell students to be on the lookout for a phone interview with the county for the next two weeks, but we're unsure if that timeline may extend because of current circumstances.
- If you need to submit an additional document that we talked about during the meeting, or if the county asks you to upload further documents, you can upload them on getcalfresh.org. Scroll down to where it says “Submit Documents”. Make sure to make an account with your county portal. This is where you:
- Can view the balance of your CalFresh benefits once you receive them.
- Where you can fill out the semi-annual SAR-7 and annual Recertification reports the county requires of you (more info below).
- Please go to your settings and indicate that you would like your Social Security Number to be linked with your account.
