According to Smart, the de- partment has begun accept- ing applications that are sub- mitted entirely through a se- cure Internet portal. "As a part of an upgrade to our system .that has been in the works for several years," Smart said, "we have imple- mented a system that is called C4Yourself." He said the new system is interactive and allows a po- tential recipient to fill out an application and to get infor- mation on the verifications they will need to complete to determine eligibility. Smart noted applicants for the Foodstamp program and for CalWORKs cash assis- tance will still need to come to the office in Quincy to complete the application process, but most applicants for MediCal who apply through the Internet will not. Smart said there are two easy ways to access the web- based application link: visit or access the link through plumascoun- and the Department of Social Services link. In addition, Smart said the department is implementing an Interactive Voice Re- sponse or IVR system. A so- cial services benefits appli- cant or recipient may call (877) 410-8826; enter a unique case identification number and unique PIN number; get automated updated informa- tion on the status of their ap- plication or their benefits. Smart said the system can provide information such as benefit amount, when it was issued and any pending items the department needs to com- plete its work. Smart added the system will always allow someone to speak directly to a case worker if the automat- ed responses don't provide the information needed. lOne-time utility help available The Department of Social Services has announced that temporary emergency assistance is available for low-income families and families receiving public assistance.
