About Benefits.Ohio.Gov

The Ohio Benefits website will enable residents to check eligibility and apply for a variety of benefits. The State of Ohio will continue to introduce new features and services on this website over the next two years.

Today, if you are eligible, you will be able to apply for Medicaid benefits.

In the future, you will be able to apply for food and temporary assistance here, too.

How does this help Ohio?

Ohio Benefits improves access to services that Ohio residents may need.

We are doing this by:

  • Simplifying the process to quickly determine access to benefits
  • Allowing residents to apply directly for benefits
  • Working with local and state agencies to improve processes and communications
