So Easy To Use

The myCOMPASS account is so easy to use to renew applications, apply for applications, link any benefits that are being received such as EBT Food Card (shows receipts, balance and scheduled payment date) and upload documents via applications quick and easily (you can take pictures of your physical documents or screen shots of your documents on your phone and upload them, they don’t have to be PDF format, just a legible picture). The myCOMPASS account even allows you to navigate the full desktop website version and shows all of the current benefits that you’re receiving. It gives you reminders for application renewals or document requests. You can update your email and cell phone details to receive text messages regarding application renewals and reminders as well! I definitely recommend the myCOMPASS app!

Good but change needs to be made

I really like the app but it does have one major problem that needs to be fixed ASAP because I can’t loose my benefits everytime there is a semi annual renew. The app doesn’t send you notifications when anything needs to be done. I check the app once a month or so and I’ve noticed that I never get notified when something like the semi annual renews come up. I have a very busy life and I’m never on my phone due to soon having 3 kids all under the age of 3 and it makes it difficult to actually take the time to go through anything on my phone. I’m late AGAIN turning in this semi annual renew form because I didn’t know it had to be done last time it was the same thing and I lost my benefits then had to reapply for them. I can’t keep reapplying due to lack of communication from the app and welfare office I literally depend on my benefits for my kids please fix this at least even doctors offices send you text notifications a few days before appointments to remind you, you have appointments coming up and it’s so helpful especially when I get so busy I forget. so why can’t my compass do something similar ? Please really look into adjusting this issue

Not pleased

This app needs to be updated and become a better system for the had working people that can’t be at the office on time.
I have so much trouble in sending documents when I have the pictures saved on to my phone. I can’t get my SAR forms or complete them on this app so what’s the concept of this app then. I’m still having trouble with submitting things on this app and the main office doesn’t check the app and cuts my benefits off with no reason given after I provide the prof in person, fax, email or even through the chain center they rip me off with half my benefits like it’s horrible and a waste of my time dealing with this app and it’s not my phone because iPhones is comparable to almost everything.
