A Mobile App Is Now Available Providing Individuals Who Applied For Or Are Receiving DSS Benefits

Mobile App

 As of April 28, 2020, Schuyler County now has a new, free mobile application (app) available to county residents that enables them to submit necessary documents. NYDocSubmit is a mobile app that provides individuals who have applied for or are receiving Department of Social Services (DSS) benefits, the ability to simply and quickly submit documentation to the DSS. This mobile app is available for download on Google PlayTM or the Apple App StoreTM and can be used to take photos of documents and upload them to Schuyler County DSS.

During this time of COVID-19 restrictions, having the ability to submit the necessary documentation from the comfort and safety of home is essential to continue supporting families in our county. COVID-19 has impacted the employment and income of many county residents. Anyone in receipt of SNAP whose employment has been affected, either because they are currently unemployed or are experiencing a decrease in hours worked, should report these to changes to Schuyler County DSS as soon as possible as it may affect their SNAP benefit amount. A convenient way to report this information is to complete and submit an online SNAP change report form (https://www.mybenefits.ny.gov/). If you are now in receipt of unemployment, you can submit proof of this and other documentation using NYDocSubmit.

Over 5,000 applicants/recipients have successfully submitted more than 17,000 documents since the NYDocSubmit mobile app was released.
