Who is the Payee on My Access Florida?

If you participate in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps, you receive benefits through an Electronic Benefit Transfer card, or EBT.

The state of Florida administers SNAP benefits under its ACCESS Florida program. A payee may be associated with your ACCESS Florida account.

What is an ACCESS Florida Payee?

An ACCESS Florida payee is someone who has been authorized by you to receive your SNAP benefits and manage those funds on your behalf. This may be a parent, guardian, spouse, friend, or other relative. A payee must reside in Florida and have a valid Social Security number or alien registration number.

How to Check Your ACCESS Florida Payee Status

To check your payee status, you must create an online account or log in to your existing account at the Florida Department of Children and Families website (myflorida.com/accessflorida). Once logged in, click on the “My Account” tab. This will display your personal profile, including whether or not you have a payee listed.

If you do have a payee associated with your account, you can view the name and contact information of your payee by clicking the “View Payee” button on your profile page. You also may change or remove an existing payee from this page.

How to Change or Remove Your ACCESS Florida Payee

If you wish to change or remove your payee, simply click “Change/Remove Payee” from the profile page. You will then be prompted to enter personal information and answer security questions in order to verify your identity. Once this verification is complete, you can indicate whether you wish to change or remove your payee.

You can add a new payee by clicking “Add Payee” from the profile page and providing the requested information about the individual you want to designate as your payee.

If you have any questions or need additional assistance, contact the ACCESS Florida customer service team at 1-866-762-2237.
